Default Hi All,nice site, will get a lot of use out of it!

Hello all, I'm a 53 year old guy who wrenched professionally until the late 80s, now own and operate a small tree business, but love the dependability of the lil Rangers. I just sold a 94 2wd with 256K on it , and picked up a 93 4x4 extended cab with a 3.0 5 speed in it that was towed behind a motor home with 215K on it. I drove it all winter without doing much to it, but it was pretty poochy, so I just tuned it up, but it was still kinda slow, so I checked the timing, the base timing was fine, but the timing won't advance past the baseline timing. I was doing some research, it said disconnect the SPOUT lead to check the timing, then plug it back in. I cannot find this lead or plug anywhere, was hoping it was just unplugged. I also read that the EEC computer controls the timing, where is this brainbox located, I thought I might try a junkyard one to see if it it fixes the problem, and how many years will fit it? Frankly, I'm stumped! Right now, I just cranked the base timing up to about 20 degrees, helped a bit, but still not right! Help!
