check to see if you have your plug wires at the right location on distributor cap. If you don't have a digram they are as follows- right side 1, 3, 5 front to rear. Left side is 2,4,6 front to rear. #1 should be on the location at front of cap closest to intake manifold. firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6. Hope this helps. KS

Replace the TFI module. Ford back in 1986 thur 1993 had problems like the one you wrote about. TFI module gets hot and shuts car or truck off then when it cools sometmies starts and sometimes not.

there's a roll pin that goes thru the drive gear.I'd change the ignition coil before the pick-up coil, if the pick up goes you'd be lucky if it would run above idle.if it has no power when it does run, try the ignition coil first.

sounds like something in the housing where the tumbler rests. might want to try putting a use column in with the new tumbler. only an idea. they are a pain to rebuild.

Is this an HEI distributor (large cap with coil on top) or a small module type distributor? I am going to lean towards the small module type, if this is the case the modules are known to have issues, remove the cap and check the harness connnection if it is tight then its probably the module. Remove the rotor, and remove the screws that hold it down, when you install the new module MAKE SURE you put some dielectric grease on the module that goes to the distributor as these modules do get hot and you need to dissipate the heat....... hope that helps
