it either comes from the plasic vacuum tree at the rear of the manifold or there might me a vacuum port on the lower engine side of the manifold near the aic sensor and goes to the map sensor.
if there is no hose that will be your problem!

it needs manifold vacuum to work.

what about the firing order of the leads??
i know that you checked the timing but have you tried moving the dizzy while its running to see if it smooths out?

umm have you got another dizzy to try?
maybe the tfi module on the side of the dizzy isnt to good..

do you think it could be the intake manifold off the 4.0l motor?
the tubes were i little fatter but the injectors are exactly the same.
it uses a lot of petrol because its running so rich
