On my '92, it's in a pink wire coming off of the coil pack. Check for spark at one of the spark plugs. . I know the original owner never changed anything on it, but maybe an end of year thing? Backpressure has absolutely nothing to do with timing. I can't find my Haynes I thought they had limited information in the emission controls chapter. I believe that the 460 has been in that area of hp output for many years. Listen to hear the fuel pum … p prime turn key but don't crank and pump should make noise.
Thank You for using Fix Ya. The engine will idle with the spout removed, however the engine will not advance timing as the rpm's advance and it will kill power. Check for damage, corrosion or dirt. You cant get to it with battery in place as near as i can tell. Hope this saves somebody some time! Dan T Thank you, I have checked the voltage at the sensor and computer already even with the wire cut off at the computer to make sure no short or bad wire in harness.
Thanks M5, I'm checking the wiring and continuity today. All bogus for my truck, how about yours? This is the info I found, remember this thing says you don't have a distributor. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them. If the resistance is not ok, it may be a bad coil. I have a stock 1990 3. It was really little more than a glorified multimeter, but the manual had some good information for testing most common sensors, and Actron has or at least used to have their users manuals available for download on their website.
There is another connector with a gray block attached to it in the left inner fender. It is normally a small squared looking grey plastic thing that should be in the end of a wire connector, and that is the only thing that will on the end of that wire connector, and it is basically just a jumper plug. What does it looks like, is a sender of some sort or a control module? When i set the timing, there was no shorting bar to remove. Do not ground the jumper for more that a couple of seconds. A ford 460 is 7.
It is also helpful to mark the notch in the pulley or the tip of the pointer with a small dab of color. Growing up I was either camping, at the farm, or at the racetrack. Thanks for all your help, it did shake the marbles loose in my brain! The 6 conductor wiring harness from the distributor to where it enters the larger harness is approximately 20 inches long and no connectors spout connector exits this harness anywhere along the 20 inches. If the result was not satisfactory, separate the wiring harness connector from the ignition module. Should you need further help please just ask.
The truck seems to advance fine without anything in that connector, and i put a paper clip in it once i got the truck running, just to see if it would idle smoother, and the truck died. When checking volts at pin 25 signal wire. The connector is just to the left of the radiator driver's side. If voltages are ok, go to step 3. If the resistance is not ok, replace coil. Wind speeds are typicallybetween 40 and 50 mph and rarely exceed 70 mph. Does that mean the ignition control module isn't working properly? It depends on the type of waterspout.
Roger, Thank you for the response. It is a gray plug in a black socket. Your vehical timing will be on the sticher under the hood on the front radiator support. It is used for gaining faster speed in execution but it might give back the larger executable file. Connect a tachometer to the ignition coil connection using an alligator clip.
Someone's got to know about this. Pull the small wire off the starter solenoid so engine will not crank. I disconnect the spout connector and check the timing. The 6 conductor wiring harness from the distributor to where it enters the larger harness is approximately 20 inches long and no connectors spout connector exits this harness anywhere along the 20 inches. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. The updraft will pull the rotation into the clouds and form a landspout.
If the resistance is ok, probe one small terminal and the coil wire terminal. I have gone thru the Chiltons and Hanynes book and have tried to make a list of the Ignition modual pin outs and wire colors. Connect an inductive timing light, such as the Rotunda 059-00006 or equivalent, to the No. My guess is the computer is bad! I bought a cheap muffler, and it looks like the tailpipe is intact enough to reuse. If spark is found, you may have a fuel system problem. From what I read this has to do with timing. Edited September 6, 2012 by Rons beast Good idea M5.
I do get advance with climbing rpm. My truck runs so bad I cant drive it safely. No ignition timing adjustments are necessary or possible. I'm pretty sure it has a distributor. Thank You for using Fix Ya. You only disconnect it when you are running a test for codes.
