Thanks, I did have the distributor out of the vehical and did find TDC
with a compression tester and big wrench to turn her over until I found TDC
, I do have timing set at TDC
, so I will change that to 10 Degrees BTDC
tomorrow and see how much that helps. It would seem that unless the computer advances the timing as needed by some other sensor, I am missing the timing sensor I believe. There is a small round mounting bracket (it appears) that has nothing on it right near the timing light marker. I checked both sides of the wheel and can not find anything that appears to have a timing sensor plug, check the wiring for a timing plug also can not find anything like that. I think maybe when this was rebuilt, they may have pulled the motor and removed the timing sensor. Not sure, I do know that all cars, trucks have to have a means to adjust timing advance, not sure how this is done on this Ranger, can not find a vac line to the distributor either. Have any other suggestions?
