FORD F-150 DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEM

1987 Ford F-150 • 478,000 miles

Truck will starts every time untill recently- lately runs, drives, fine until last week. Now kills at stops or while running truck turns over but will not start untill 2-6-10 min. Had problem appox 3-4 yrs ago. Stalled and would not start. A friend said change sensor on distributor. Had towed to mech. He chg'd sensor but thinks it was on o/side of distr. Spoke with napa sales they said pick-up sensor in distr. Took it appart can see pick-up piece - went to ford see the piece to be replaced but can't figure out how to chg it out --- can't find how to on internet --- don't want to take a chance on breaking anything. I see part on ford half moon circle 3 wires coming from under with plugin clip and rotor bar-and plasticap clip under rotor/distr. Shaft --- how to get it off and back on --- no photo's avail. Truck has appox. 478,000 + org. Miles all orginial except gen. Repairs thanks mike m. C- 504-430-4556 e-deemcguire@att. Net

THE OTHER PART YOU COULD BE DESCRIBING IS THE PICK UP COIL........THIS MAY NOT BE YOURS....I USED A "302 ENGINE"--AS I DID NOT REMEMBER SEEING YOUR SIZE IN THE QUESTION
