What the heck is the snout?
Thanks in advance for this help. I'm setting the timing on my bone stock '89 EFI 460 (California) in a F-350...the labels in the truck's engine compartment use the word "snout". What the heck is the snout?
The instructions say to disconnect the electrical connection at the "snout", then set the timing. There is a tiny pictorial representation of the snout on the label and it just looks like a small pull-apart coupling. There is no vacuum advance...but there is a good sized six wire connector attached to the distributor body where the advance springs would normally reside. If I disconnect this electrical connector at the distributor...the engine won't start!?
Thanks again. Dave
