    When you crank it throttle pulsates press pedal and doesnt throttle up. Everthing moves slowly. It's the ford motor duel gas fuel. Sent to a place they said throttle solenoid bad. Changed it then worked fine moved across parking lot blew the solenoid said bad wire somewhere. Any one have ideas on this.

    Which style solenoid, 2 wire or 3? If three then you are working off the pull in winding only and this overheats and blows out quickly when used as a continuous duty. Serial number and which throttle controller that it has would help. Some had a very simple throttle circuit with no controller and others were more complicated with multiple step throttle governing.

    Machine serial number? A picture of the solenoid and controller would help. If it's original it is probably a 2 wire solenoid if it is updated/retrofitted it could be anything.

    That serial number does not match anything I have. Are you sure it's a Ford and not a GM?

    Again without knowing the serial number it is just a guess, but with a throttle body it will be a later one rather than one with a carb. If the TB motor is failing make sure the ecm is ok before installing a new one. They operate via a pwm signal from the ecm and if the output from the ecm is shorted it can destroy the motor.

    There is a service bulletin that covers these issues from FPP (Ford Power Products), I will see if I can find it.

    It is FPP 194-306, the bulletin covers troubleshooting the fuel and electronic systems on that engine. The following url is from Snorkel and gives a breakdown of the components and locations.

    You can (or should be able to find) the FPP 194-306 on the net by Google. I don't have it in electronic form.
