    2.3l Ford engine won(39)t shut off-gctid813549

    I was running the engine at home with water muffs to check it out for this season. It was idling when I turned the ignition switch off, but the engine kept right on running at an idle. I had to cover the carb throat with my hand to stop it. I checked the switch with an ohmmeter and it is functioning properly. Any suggestions on where to look next?

    My first thought would be the ignition switch went.

    Next time pull the coil plug off the dist, use a tool with taped handles .
    Be good, be happy, for tomorrow is promised to no man !

      Nothing wrong with the switch. I tried another good switch and it made no difference.

        Engine starts with the key, won't shut down with the key.

        Your coil feed wire must be hot,

        Main barrel plug,

        I'm going to look for the free d/l for you will have the electrical diagram.
