My 77 wont start
I recently bought 1977 F-150. It has a 351M in it with 56K original miles. I've driven it for about 2 weeks, and haven't any real serious problems. It did have a small timing issue and a vaccuum leak, but that was all. After adjusting the timing, (I still haven't found the leak) it really smoothed out and picked up so HP. Now comes my problem. I was going to work one night, and stopped to get gas, and it wouldn't start. I was able to get it started the next morning to drive it home, but it hasn't started since. I've replaced the starter, and the solenoide, and still no luck. When you turn the ignition, the solenoide chatters really loud. I was wondering if maybe the timing slipped enough that it won't crank, and if that is the case, how do I know how to get it back in time. If it isn't the timing, what would be next on my parts list? Should I check the coil, or the ignition module? I've read and re-read my Chiltons, but it doesn't referance these parts as part of the problem.
I sure hope that someone out there could give me a little insight to what's going on. Any help is really appreciated.
