1985 ford ranger 2.8L.I'm not sure how the timing advance operates on this truck but I know it's not working at all. What wires go where and are there any vaccum lines that controll it?
Do you
have the same problem?

Timing instrument should be connected to No. 1 one spark plug wire using an adapter or clip-on connector. Do not puncture spark plug wire or boot to make connection.

Turn off all lights and accessories. Set parking brake and place transmission in Neutral. Ensure A/C and heater are off. Connect timing light and disconnect the single wire in-line spout connector or remove the shorting bar from the double wire spout connector.
Start engine and warm to normal operating temperature. Check timing and adjust if necessary. Reconnect spout connector or reinstall shorting bar. Check timing advance to verify distributor is advancing properly. Remove tachometer and shut off engine.
