Re: FORD - No Start
As it turns out, nothing wrong with the fender solonoid. The replacement solonoid on the starter was bad out of the box. Suspected this due to this particular gremlin coming to life immediately after it's installation. Worn starter armature may have also caused this, and yes perhaps the batteries too...But most likley a combination.
Action taken: New Starter, Starter solonoid, and batteries installed. One battery tested bad both replaced, fender solonoid on order from advanced auto parts for good measure.
Apparently the fuel leak on the FPR to bowl seal has been dealt with. No more fuel flow off the valley. While I had the FPR off this time I also yanked the snap ring on the bottom and pulled that apart. The brillo filter was clogged, pulled out, and cleaned. getting that O-ring on the lower plate back in place was fun.
The truck is now back to it's first improvement...turns over, fires, but does not start. Brownish black smoke out the tail pipes. Checked the glow plugs on the passengers side when I had that apart and they were good. .08 ohms if I remember correct...Not much but enough to indicate that they were not an open circuit. Guess I need to yank the drivers side again and check those.

Thats caused by your batteries geing low. It welds the soleniod contacts together on the fender. Give it a good wack with a screwdriver handle and charge the batteries.
