Re: Calling all Ford guys!! OK I know...
If your battery has more than 11 volts it is fine. If it is running with the key in the start position but dies when you let off of the key then you need to verify you have power to the coil with the key in the 'run' position. If you do then something is wrong inside of the distributor or the coil. If you don't, you could have a bad ignition switch, solenoid, or an 'open' in the 'run' circuit.
Once you do get it running, you should have 14 volts across the battery posts.
