I recently had two stoppage insidents that " almost " left me stranded . The first was a failure of the pick up coil in the distributor and the second was a failure of the solenoid fuel swith valve . I now carry a spare distributor and timing light .
I also have a question . I carry a new ignition module as a spare and changed that first . It was originally mounted on the left front wheel well panel ( difficult to access ) , but I moved it up in clear view so I could change it readily . It is hanging down from a panel in the front part of the engine compartment with tie wraps . I am wondering if the sheet metal mounting ( wheel well panel ) is needed as an additional heat sink to the fins on the case of the module ? I could not have the other nearly new one checkd at Auto Zone so they ordered me another new one free of charge ( lifetime warranty ) , but I would imagine it was still good ?? Problem that time was the fuel solenoid switch used to change from main to aux tanks . Jamie
Just as I thought my 1975 Ford Class C was relaible after new distributor and new fuel selector solenoid , but it died ! Apparently the carburetor float stuck and flooded badly so thst is next in line before any trips . Hard to beleive I am having these problems after only 117,000 miles !! Ha!!!
