I have a 91 1/2 ton, 300 I6, 4x4, 4spd w/ OD.  It has always jumped violently
occaisionally when under a heavy load, like when going uphill, with the gas
mashed.  I recently filled up (both tanks) with what I found out later to be
watery gas.  I ran dry gas through her, and filled with premium after I ran
the bad stuff out.  But she still surges or hesitates whenever I am in 2nd or
3rd gear, going a steady speed.  She started this right after I put the bad
gas in there.  Any Ideas?

Thanks, Robert Werner

P.S., excuse the last post, of similar subject, the message didn't send the

First I will explain what I have done.  I replaced normal tune-up items i.e.
plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and fuel filter.
Now the truck is bucking at lower rpms (below 2500).  I have checked my new
wires for proper order and that they were on tight.  I swaped in the old
coil wire and I still have the same condition.
I think one of the new wires is not quite up to snuff.  So my question is,
what is a good resistance measurment for new wires?
I will be able to test the wires in a couple of days and would like to get
an idea of proper values.  These are just standard 8mm wires that I picked
up at Wally World (I know, I shouldn't have, please, no flames).  The truck
is an '89 F250 w/ 5.0L and M5OD.
If anyone has BTDT, please let me know how you came out.
Thanks
Roger

It's probably crossfire between #7 & #8.  Reroute #8 over the intake
manifold and around the back to the plug.  If it isn't long enough, at
least make sure #7 & #8 are never close to each other.

Good luck,
Steve Spaulding.

I have had the same problem just a few days ago. after changing around $100
in electrical stuff it turned out to being a loose coil wire. one of the two
off the front, the red one.

good luck
