hey fellow lovers of wheels i have been watching the threads here for a while and have solved a few small problems using the info you have given to others. so today i registered and hope that i may only repay the community if i can. i bought a retired class 7 ranger with a 302/c4/9" set up. as for the block i know its from a mid 60s car stock as far as i can tell. i have alot of history with off road trucks and building suspension but not walking thru the valley of ford im alittle lost. i have run the truck several times and all seems good until a week ago, started the truck for a quick run around the block to test my new brakes and while the engine was warming it died(like a pulled coil wire) turned it over several times to rule out the basics and found fuel, crank, valves all working but the rotor in dist not turning. if i try to turn it by hand its locked in position but will not rotate with engine. i havent had time to dig in so i was hoping someone could let me know how deep the mud should be that im about to walk thru. i have a few tools thanks to snap on and know what the heart and lungs look like just dont have the knowledge under a ford hood.
