Could be off the mark with a wealth of electrical probs it could be, but, don't rule out harmonic balancer, I started my NF to move it up the drive one night and thought it was a bit grumpy, the next morning it seemed to be missing quite bad, took it straight to mechanics and they checked for missfire but couldn't trace it, but after talking here on fordmods with everyone they said try balancer ...and bingo! it had slipped causing the whole engine to shake just like a miss!
