Hold up, neither the 89 or 97 truck in your signature even has a pickup coil, so what 3rd truck are we talking about (Im too lazy to scroll back to look for your other posts)

I'm positive that neither of those trucks have a pickup coil.

Perhaps you changed the hall effect on the 89? Well if you are talking 89, we have a whole new direction to take the tbi troubleshooting.

If you are talking about some pre 88 truck, please state so.



Never mind, it appears you are talking about a 1985 ramcharger with a 340 intake? Back to the bent shaft/airgap discussion.

What are your feeler gauges made out of? Brass? Steel? Cardboard?

the shaft at least visually spins true

i also replaced ballast resister

what are the thousandths that the gap should be set at?

i was told the thickness of notebook paper so i went by that

and yes its the '85 with the 340 intake when i made my acct i didnt have this one yet

i believe its .008'', there is usually a brass feeler in a set of feeler gauges that is the correct size
