1984 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles
I Have a 1984 F150 I have received from my Step Dad when he passed away several years ago. I have ben restoring it between deployments and ahve the same problem several times.
The engine refuses to start. It has appeared to be a starter problem and replacing it has cured the problem in the past. I recently replaced the starter only to have the truck start once then not start on several attempts later.
The starter has been replaced twice in the last couple of days with the same results. A large load on the electrical system and lugging of the starter until it refuses to turn or even make an attempt to start. The previous starter was tested and it spun the first test then locked up after that. It ws VERY hot when I removed it from the vehicle. The new starter does not get hot but still will not start. The battery is less than a year old and check's out good. When I try to jumper the starter solenoid it just chatters and the starter does nothing.
