I picked up an '88 Mustang GT with a T-5 about two weeks ago. I want to check the timing. It turns over very slow during a hot start.
I have never owned a 5.0L EFI motor, but have read about disconnecting the spout on the dizzy to check the timing. Where is the spout connector? I only see one large connector on the dizzy. I don't have a shop manual yet, what should I start with on base timing?
The previous owner said he had to run premium to keep it from pinging, which is another reason why I thought the timing might be set too high.
