If it is a 1985 or 1986 model with a stock Ford 5.8L/351, it will be the "H.O." version. What makes it an "H.O" is a 4-barrel carburetor, higher performance camshaft, and a Duraspark II ignition. ...

Check your vacuum advance hose from your distributor. Make sure it is connected to a ported vacuum source.
