Are you just setting the timing of the distributor? or did you have the dist out and cannot get it back in correctly? or did you replace the timing chain/gears? (some of those motors used gears, some chains).

It helps to know what kind of trouble you are having.

I can't tell you how, but a good forum with good info on these trucks is ford-trucks.com they have engine specific sub-forums with plenty of knowledgeable people just like here.

(hope this isn't against the rules)

X2.

It won't work right if you do not disconnect the bypass plug.
