Heck, AB loves junkyards. She'll go running from car to car checking
them out. She even went with me to a yard in rural Arkansas, in pouring
rain, up a hill, helped pull the head off an old six cylinder Falcon,
and carried the toolbox back while I lugged the head out to the car.

Now if I could only get her to make the conceptual leap to connect the
numbers stamped on the tools with sizes.

"Hand me a 9/16," I'll ask. She'll go through an entire roll of
wrenches, peering at 1/4" and 1" wrenches, and then will hand me a 5/8".
I think she's about got the difference between Phillips and flathead
screwdrivers, though.

Daniel,
Did it run before you started this cap and rotor thing? If so, you
probably just don't have the wires on right.
Click on the attachment below. Look at the engine photo(the 2nd photo)
You can actually see the wire locations here.
Look at page 63 in the Chilton Repair and Tune Up Guide Ford Bronco
1966-1986. If you are facing the front of the vehicle then number 1
cylinder is on your left in front. The timing mark can align twice with
the no. 1 top dead center. One of these will be 180 degrees out and your
rotor button should face the no. 6 cyl. position in the photo on page 63,
at that time. If it is, then turn your crankshaft once more around to the
timing marks to align them and you should see the rotor button go to no. 1
cyl. location in the photo on page 63. The rotation from the no. 1 cyl.
for the firing order and the wire placement is to the left or counter
clockwise. The firing order is 13726548 and trace each wire at the time
you put it on the distributor to its correct sparkplug.
Please note the locations of the two clips holding the cap down and no. 1
cyl.
Daniel, if this is what you have then something else is wrong but the odds
are against that. Its only a wire being crossed.

Ron---Bronco Lover

Dale,
I finally found my Mityvac book and here's what its got to say about
your
4 port TVS and some more info on your 2 port TVS.

>From the book - The two-port valve is used to stop EGR while the engine is
cold.
This type of thermal switch is needed to provide good driveability by limiting
the
entrance of EGR until the engine is warmed up. The three port valve is
commonly
called a cooling system PVS because it switches the vacuum source to the
distributor
from the ported vacuum source to the intake manifold vacuum source. This 3
port TVS
operates at 235 degrees F.
The four-port valve has been used in some Ford engines to bypass the spark
delay
valve and cut out the EGR system when the engine is cold.

2 Port EGR TVS color coding
Green 68 degrees F
Black 100 degrees F
Plain or Blue 133 degrees F

*When the engine reaches the specified temp then vacuum should pass through the
valve.

4 Port TVS switch testing is as follows:
This TVS operates at 125 degrees F

Top two ports -
When the engine is above 125 degrees F you should not see any vacuum passing
between the top two ports.
Below 125 degrees F you should see vacuum passing between the top two ports.

Bottom two ports
When the engine is cold (below 125 degrees F) no vacuum should pass between the
lower two ports.
When the engine is above 125 degrees F you should see vacuum passing between
the lower two ports.

If the valve fails any of the above tests...replace the valve.

Your valve marked S, E, M, D indicates that the vacuum lines should be hooked
up from the
Spark port, EGR port, Manifold port, and Distributor.
More than likely you should have a spark delay valve in line between the TVS
and the distributor.
You may also find a one way vacuum check valve somewhere in the system.

I'm pretty sure your Motorcraft 2150 has the spark port on the side and the EGR
port on the front.

Your pollution cannister should have lines running from the fuel tank to the
cannister...from carb fuel bowl vent
to the cannister....another vacuum line running from a tee connection off of
the EGR port on the carb to serve as
a vacuum signal to operate the valve on top of the cannister....and finally a
purge line running from the cannister up
to a tee connection between the PCV valve and the PCV port on the carb. When
the engine vacuum is strong enough
it sends a signal to the cannister valve to open and send the excess fuel
vapors from the fuel tank and carb bowl to the
base of the carb at the PCV connection to be reburned.

Hope this helps you get your vacuum system hooked up right and tested.

For those who haven't tried it Interlibrary loan is an excellent service.
You can get any virtually any book for the cost of postage! A few years
back I did some research on electric cars and was amazed by the technical
and engineering info that I could get. I'm waiting right now for a book on
"Rebuilding the Ford V-8" that was recommended by a list member.

Happy Reading!

Sorry Dana, but I think your reading sometime into this that isn't there. I
do agree our wives deserve respect. I just wish I knew what the heck you are
talking about with the "sleeping to Madame Butterfly" thing! :)

After 16 years I still love Teddi enough to die for, even when she's driving

Ken,
I flamed someone privately for this same thing but felt bad after, so I
just set up a standard reply with instructions and when I see one I Send
it directly to them. Now wouldn't be fun if we all sent the same
standard reply to the "boneheads", can you imagine getting 20 or so of
the same reply. ( something might sink in )

Below is the standard E-Mail I send: ( hope im not overstepping my
bounds)

Hi Gang!
I put a picture of my F350 on my Homepage. It also shows the kind of day
we had here in So. Cal. today. It was a little bright out to be taking a
picture of a white truck but hey, I can think of worst things to deal with.
50,000 visits! Good thing you don't need to be there to greet everyone
"Hello, Welcome to Ford Trucks" 50,000 times would be like work.
Congratulations Bro & Sis, Looks like your a hit (little Web humor).

Great find on the F-350. I also found my truck in the Truck Trader and
found that almost every $1200 to $1500 truck that looked good in the
picture was gone the same day the adds came out. I even called a guy and
in the time it took me to drive over to look at it he had sold it. ( I
think it was 20 min or so ).

Also love the mountains in the back ground. I hate living in the
flatlands!
