Hello to the list,
I have a 1986 F-150, 302 cid, two barrel carb, computer controlled
distributor. The engine is an older engine and not fuel injected like the
tag states. The computer is also not working and brings on the problem of
the distributor not advancing. Having a limited budget can I go to a
wrecking yard and purchase an older electronic distributor and install it?
What do I need to make this work assuming I can make it work? What wiring
would I need? Just a hot from the wiring harness going into the distributor
now? Anything I am overlooking?

Thank for the help

We had an '83 F250 with the same problem. There are 3 fixes that I can
think of.
1)Get the original DuraSpark distributor and module. These are about '74
up. You'll have to find the appropriate wiring diagram to hook it all up.
2)Get an old points distributor
3)We went for a Mallory unilite disributor. All in 1 unit. Simple hookup.
Works perfect.
