Question about 1982 Ford F 250
Going up hills or putting the pedal to the medal for power or speed causes my truck to backfire and i lose power
It sounds like the timing is off but moore likely it's caused by the point gap being to close due to wear on the rubbing block.
The gap of the points effects the timing.
You probably need to clean and adjust the points.
If that doesn't work try replacing the points and if the old one are pitted, replace the condenser also.
If that doen't work check the coil.
