Wow, lots of new parts. Did you have a shop check this for you?

A big issue with the distributors is the lower gear wears out and has all kinds of slop thus changing the cam retard. You should have this checked.

Thanks,
I ve had nothing but trouble from this truck so yeah replaced a lot of parts. Took it to dealership one time they said fuel pump bad but wires were cut from the gas tank band from a previous change, it was running great then slowly this problem came about over a period of a week. Some one said in is the knock senor but I really need a solution so I can trade it in for something to get me going down the road.

The knock sensor will retard the timing in 4 degree incriments for a total of 4 times. If you disconnect it, it should remian stable. If not then it is something else.

Ok I got to find it lol I understand it is a pain to get to. A distributor problem wearing is a great way to go, it came on over time and wear is consistent with your solution.
