86 PICKUP DISTRIBUTOR DOES NOT SPIN
1986 Ford F-150 • 500,000 miles
When we turn the engine over the distributor does not spin, we can spin it by hand.
Your timeing chain is broke or your distributor has a sheered pin in the bottom.
I can slide the distributor strait out, and there doesnt seem to be any damage to the cylinder or the hex looking spindle at the bottom of it. when we spin it, and it only feels like there is very light resistance. also there is nothing coming from the coil at all.
Yes if the distributor gear looks good and you can spin it then you have a broken timeing chain if you have a v-8 if a six then timeing gear or chain. remove oil cap look inside crank engine you sholul see rockers moving up and down check compression
It is an inline 6. The rockers are not moving, and there is compression on some of the cylinders.
Timeing chain broken
How do we replace the timing chain?
You need to remove the front cover on the engine behind the crank pulley you will need to remove the radiator as well . if you look in our how too section it will give you detailed info on this repair
Do you have a repair manual? if not best get one you'll be needing it when its time for the valve and ignition timing
