Ok so I have an 86 F-150 that has been sitting for almost 3 years now.
Its had a ton of problems. Its on its 4th engine.
Now I really dont know anything when it comes to gas engines, Ive focused all my attention on diesels
It has a 302 with EFI.
Now it lost compression in 3 cylinders the first time the engine blew with about 15k on it. I bought the truck with this engine in it, had a cam, timing chain, headers and a couple other little mods and was converted to EFI.
So I was 16 at the time and didnt really know any better and got a reman 302 short block from ford to put in cuase it had a warranty.
Well about 3 months later with 2k miles on it, the new engine lost compression in one cylinder.
So I took it to ford and they tore it apart to find the culprit (a different shop that I would trust any of my trucks with put the first one in)
So anyways since they had to go through everything for warranty approval the checked the numbers on my injectors. Well turned out that I had two sets of 4 cylinder fuel injectors in the truck so obviously it was running very lean.
So I know the guys at the dealer pretty well and even though it should not have been covered under warranty they replaced the engine at no cost to me minus the cost of actual 5.0l fuel injectors.
So now ever since then the truck would be back there every month becuase what would happen is the truck would randomly cut out and die and Id have to let it sit and cool down for a couple hours and then I could start it back up.
They threw a lot of parts at it and it never fixed it and finally it died one day about 3 years ago and never would start again, just doesnt seem to be getting any fuel
So enough was enough with throwing money at it so for the past three years its been sitting in a shed.
So there is the background on it, Ive been planning on using it as a project to swap a diesel in becuase the truck is in amazing shape but for now I really just miss driving it and would like to get it running again.
So the issue is that it gets no fuel whatsoever. Now obviously the guy I bought the truck from screwed up the injectors. Now the engine thats in it has about 2k miles on it only. Its all stock now no more cam or anything.
Like I said Im not good with knowing anything about gas engines so I wanted to see what you guys think. Id really like to get it running. I put stabilizer in the fuel but Im sure Im gonna have to drain that and put new stuff in before attempting any type of starting. lol
Thanks in advance and sorry for the essay
