    I understand. I am not sure what that part is. The Stator ? I am a home improvement person by trade. The truck is a 1986. Sorry for the typo. I do thank you for your help. Getting dark here now. I will go back to it tomm. I assume the part I replaced was what you were talking about.

Check and see if it has spark, if not replace the DURASPARK module and the distributor stator, worked in a Ford dealer 20 years as a tech and this is the most common problem.

I have an 85 Ford F150 with a 302 FI. I am replacing the valve cover gaskets in it. I tore down and rebuilt yesterday. Leaking more now than when I started. Will be tearing down and rebuilding again...

usually due to overtightening the bolts and distorting the rocker cover flkange. Torque is very low. straighten flange and use a gasket sealer on each side of gasket and do not tighten more than 10 ft lbs.
