SPark OUTput. A piece that enables/disables computer advance. It needs to be removed to disable computer advance when setting base timing

power loss

removed the cat and other polution stuff. got the egr plug in module for the $20.00, replaced the fuel filter under driver feet and the recommended alternator belt (shorter due to pump removal). Truck runs great. thanks for the tips!

Did you do this all at once or see how the truck reacted after each? Curious to know what the actual problem was

Had the Cat replaced runs better but not much. I know a retired Ford Mechanic he's going to look at it tomorrow. He say's he doesn't beleive in the code readers, will test it with his voltmeter (he has all of his Ford Manuals from when he went to work until he retired) He has what is know as a treasure trove!

I asked for the old Cat. The muffler shop said they had to send it in to have the haz-mat properly disposed of. This is California aka as Taxifornia.

Catalytic converters are not haz-mat - even in California. Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium are far, far too valuable to dispose of. Cat was scrapped and they kept the $60.
