Spout connector? I don't understand. Do you mean the coil wire from the coil or distributor cap?

SPOUT IS SORTA THE CYBER ANSWER TO A DISTRIBUTOR PREVIOUSLY USING VACUUM ADVANCE. WHEN YOU "TIME" THE ENGINE, YOU DISCONNECT "SPOUT" INSTEAD OF DISCONNECTING VACUUM ADVANCE, AND PLUGGING IT.

BY THE WAY, I DO NOT HAVE YOUR ANSWER, WANT ME TO TRY TO FIND YOU A DIAGRAM, WHICH WOULD MAYBE SHOW WHERE THE SPOUT GOES, RELATED STUFF?

PLEASE SEND EXACT NOMENCLATURE OF YOUR RIG AND ENGINE SIZE. SOMETIMES I CANNOT GO THAT FAR BACK IN "MITCHELL I".I WILL LET YOU KNOW, WHEN I TAKE YOUR INFO THERE

Thank you Mike and Medic for your replies.
The weapon is a 1987 Ford Bronco ( full size ) with a 5.0 L. Engine.
From what I have here, the SPOUT runs from the P.C.M. To the connector then to the I.D.M. ( Module ) located on the side of the distributor.
Also need to note that the fuel pump runs all the time.
So my son says.

Fuel pump even runs when the engine isn't?
