You need to disconnect the control wire from the computer so the distributor falls back to base timing. It should be a grey plug over by the blower box. Looks weird, just a wire going to a plug and back out; the plug is just a bridge to break the connection. Timing should be set at 10° BTDC.

PLACE T. LIGHT IN SAFE AREA, SO AS NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ENGINE OPERATION. THEN START ENGINE. SHINE KIGHT ON LOWEST PULLY. YOU WILL SEE LINES ON HARMONIC BALANCER BHIND PULLY, JUST ABOVE IN THE INDICATER TAG WITH DEGEE MARRKS. BY TURNING DIST. IT WILL MOVR LARGE GROOVE ON H. BAL. GEN IT SHOULD BE SET AT SIS TO EIGHT DEGREES BEFORE TOP DEAD CENTER ON TAB.

Why would my 89' Ford Bronco have difficulties to start at times?


You really should have said what times you had problems.. Just saying at times does not help. If the engine is hot and is hard to start you should look at the heat shield between the exhaust and the starter. a hot starter = hard to start. ALSO if your timing is advanced it will cause it to be hard to start. also if your battery is weak.

On your radiator cover or under hood sticker should say what degree the timing should be set at, then you will need a timing light and on your harmonic ballencer you will see the numbers 0 btc and so on. get a light anf pointit at them while turning distibuter.

Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.
