Check this procedure even though its for a T-Bird, it also applies to Mustangs.

if you need a PIP, its best to replace the whole distributor, bu this time, its mechanically worn.


They are $60 autozone new without the module on the face of the dizzy and your old core.


You need to know if you have a steel gear or cast iron, they are not interchangable and severe damage will result.

Before you remove the dizzy, put WHITE OUT on the spark plug wire it was last at if possible, so you can stab it back it easy

installed yet?

Did you get the one with a new ignition module? or if you reused your old one, put plenty of the high temp with grease on the dizzy where the module sits?
