How is the condition of the wiring, at, and around the Ignition Control Unit?
I am asking that because I will usually find all of these wires, including the wires leading out to the engine, to be in poor condition. I usually find that the wires will have a lot of missing wire insulation with a lot of exposed wires that are either touching other exposed wires, or to ground. Un-twist any twisted up wires especially the wires to the Ignition Control Unit. Check and inspect the wires carefully for missing insulation especially any twisted up wires, and also check inside the wire looms for any damaged wires. I can not even begin to count how many times that I have had to get out the soldering iron and repair wiring in that location, and on those types of F-Series Ford trucks.

SOURCE: 1992 ranger 2.3l timing is at
With the SPOUT jumper removed the timing should be 10BTDC, 15BTDC is close - maybe you should check it again to be sure you aren't misreading the timing mark? If you still think the timing isn't right, you can compare the SPOUT signal to the PIP (Pre Ingnition Pickup) signal which is always 10 BTDC and should match the SPOUT when the jumper is removed. Other than that, 23 BTDC is about normal so I think if it is not running optimally, your problem lies elsewhere, especially since there no DTCs related to the ignition system. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope that helps.
