Two Trucks, Two issues. 93 302, 84 351

THE 84 F250 351 4 speed

Situation: I have this old truck that I don't exactly what to get rid of, but I'm having some stupid issues.

Issues: The truck will drive fine, but at random times will die. leaning toward an electrical issue, possibly a coil. When she dies, she won't restart right away, it take about 30 seconds of trying before it goes again... and the starter is working fine.

I changed the fuel filter, and starter solenoid. I honestly cannot remember if this happened after changing the stater solenoid or before.

Mostly this happens on Deceleration, but not always.

Ideas?

(i've tried yanking on wires and such while she's parked in the garage, wont die)

The 92 f250 302 auto
Situation: SQUEALING NOISE
Replaced already: Idle Pulley, belt

Issues that might be related. The alternator is charging all the time, about 16 or so, slightly higher, and every so often 'dips' down to 8 or so, every now and then, but not often, but being the noise is coming from the same area.

My daily fix: I take a bar of soap to the belt and it will shut up for a few hours. Its an old trick I learned, but it keeps coming back.

Other then that, the truck runs fine, I just hate having everyone looks at me when I'm driving it.

Ideas? bad alternator?

'84: Get a Haynes manual & test the ignition system. Read this caption:



'92: An alternator running at 16V is a problem by itself, so fix that first. Read this caption:



Then clean or replace the belt. Keep the soap in the shower - not under the hood.

The 84 ford F250 fix was to replace the ignition brain box.


..wife wrote off the 1993. So now I'm stuck fixing rear suspension and finding a new box.
