You asked for it.

Hopefully they aren't huge.


I know it was a joke about the snowman, but I gotta give you a bad time where I can.

But it couldn't have jumped time, I used steel timing gears for THAT REASON.

So, a thorough check of the fuel system at 5* in a blizzard shows no problem. But it couldn't have jumped time. I know it couldn't have jumped time.

So I get the timing light out, sure enough, WAY off. Don't know how it's running. Advance the distributor, runs great. Much noggin scratching follows. Try spare ignition module. Timing stays. Put old module back on. Goose throttle to hear that sweet sound of an FE through 12" glass packs. Pops and dies.

Long story short the roll pin in the distributor gear sheared. Re-installed gear with a piece of 7018 welding rod in place of roll pin and peened over the ends, and used 1/2 bottle of loctite. Long cold aggravating morning.

Still not sure why it drove to town.

Same thing happened on my 77 1.5 years ago. Exactly the same head scratching when checking the timing and after the adjustment. Good to get it figured out.

Did either of you find the shear pin in the oil pan?

Mine was still in the gear (fortunately). Had just sheared and allowed the gear to rotate on the shaft.

Same, most of it was either in the shaft or in the gear. It just weren't hooked together no more.

I'm just thankful it didn't explode the mufflers like our old bronco did.
