Article 106 - Rough Engine Operation

TSB #10 - January 28, 1972
(1971-72 Pinto/Capri)


Rough engine operation may be caused by a broken distributor breaker plate ground wire.

Remove the distributor cap and inspect the breaker plate ground wire (see Fig. 4). If the wire is broken, replace it with an insulated ground wire. Part No. D2PZ-12264-A. Install the insulated ground wire with one end under the point set hold down screw and the other end behind the lower breaker plate flange as shown in Fig. 4. This flange also secures the cap clamp to the housing. During the ground wire installation the breaker plate assembly must be pressed down firmly against its supporting shoulder in the housing. After installation, reset point gap to specification.
