    Ignition module could be going bed. I just went through all that crap on my truck and my neighbors. Mine turned out to be the distributor main shaft, his was the pick-up coil, EST, and the reluctor was also broke????

    What a week:doah:

    well i took the cap off and looked at everything no moisture and everything looks to be ok it is missing very badly up until this moning it was running ok i think that the whole motor is junking out i have had problems with it ever since i got it everything was fixable until now the cam was starting to get flat and i have always had timing issues im guessing because of the cam :(
    i dont want to say how many times i redropped the distributor when i first got it thinking it was off a tooth
