    My next best guess would be that considering the mileage, the coil is breaking down at high RPM's.

    I have one I'll let you have cheep! Whole ball of wax! Just put a new IM in it! Works great (even at high RPM's)!

    The coil and distributor are original to the truck, so im sure they're worn out

    Ok. Checked the codes @Rusty Nail , i got


    Flash , flash, long flash, flash
    Then
    Flash, flash, long flash.



    Following that, i got a regular code,
    Flash, pause, flash flash (12)
    Flash, flash, flash, pause, flash flash (32)


    Weird. It speaks in morse and obd1?

    ANYWAY
    Wez allz knowz code 12 is just no rpm signal cuz the trucks not running!

    The more important code........




    Thats just an egr code :(
    Itz bez angryz withz mez.
    The rubber diaphragm is leaking, doesnt hold a vacuum.

    So
    .



    False alarm 4 now:005:

    I can't believe that I didn't think of the knock sensor. When mine went out in the SS it acted like that no power at higher rpms. Guess I just didn't think about them being in a square motor unless it had been a ls swap.

    My votes a nice BBC to go with the new trans. :cool:
