1fast lorinser I didn't see this in time and I attempted the nutter by pass and kinda guessed Nd tried to see what happened, so I connected the orange from the distributor to the really light orange wire u see in the picture, the first 1 on the left and then connected the purple from the distributor to the pinkish white wire u see in the picture, which is the 2nd wire from the left in the first picture and it started and ran pretty good, if I did the nutter bypass wrong, would the car still run? Now I'm worried that I did it wrong ?

Cavemans89YJ It may not help you out any but on mine i actually changed out the icm to one from an 84 Ford F150. My dad just happened to have one laying around at his shop after i mentioned my problem to him and it had the purple and orange wire coming from it and it works fine . Just some FYI in case you know someone. I think most 80's model Fords have have it.

ljjp10 Are you sure you have the right set of wires? You should have 4 wires in and only 3 out.
