ok, so i bought a "reliab;e vehical" to get to work and all, ran good for about a week then after a carb cleaning and putting about 3/4 of a liter of lucas in her, she back fired and quit. Restarted it and now its runs like its on 4 cyl, pulled off the air cleaner again to check around, started it and blew fire about two feet off the carb, not sure if this is normal for a ford....lol....anyway, changed the ecm, changed the plugs, blew out the carb, not sure what to do next.
Distributor looks good, ecm is grounded, plugs are gapped @ .040, runs for a few minutes really bogged, then blows a fireball out of the carb and dies.
glasspacks dont sound good when the engine wont run...lol...
