Hello all

I am have an intermittent no crank issue as well when car is hot from driving. I have an 87 cab, just redid top end and clutch. I never had the issue before I did the drop and work.

I did replace fly and reference sensors ( both)- gapped correctly .

If it sits for a while it will start again no problem.

I did replace original starter and still happens. I cleaned connections and ground and used dielectric grease on connections.
Always hear fuel pump and get dash lights when turning ignition switch .

Could I in fact have a bad rebuilt starter?
Does the yellow # 50 wire from ignition switch break at any point - maybe a loose splice or connection somewhere?
On 87's is there a relay that might be bad?
Would hot engine show a failing ignition switch.

It's driving me nuts and makes me fearful to drive and get stranded somewhere, especially since I just did so much work on it. Since it's not all the time it's hard to trace....

Thanks to all!!!!
