This attracted my attention. Mine is an ED but not so different to the XH.

Mine went one better, it blew up the exhaust!

The problem was the TFI module. The TFI module was replaced and it kept on stalling (not backfiring this time.

The problem was the TFI connector from the wire harness. Get a tiny screwdriver and scratch the contacts.
It may well be that the original TFI module worked perfectly well but there was a bad oxidised connection to the module. The mechanic preferred to swap it with another OEM Bosch module and distributor. KEEP AWAY FROM AFTERMARKET DIZZIs. :!:

If your timing is out, it is not hard to remove the dizzy and reinsert it after you have found TDC. Better let the mechanic do that...but if he installed the dizzy in the first place I'd swap mechanic ASAP


ADDITIONAL INFO
I was off the road for weeks so I spent this time to make an aluminium plate on which I transferred the TFI module. I sacrificed the old TFI to make it a simple connector to the distributor from which r wires came out to the TFI module placed next to and under the air filter. In the future if the TFI module plays up I can swap it in 3 minutes.

refer to this - http://www.fordmods.com/the-garage-f53/timmya-s-93-ed-falcon-t79040.html as somewhere in those pages he refers to modifying the TFI module for remote use.

Wow, what an encyclopedia of falcon solutions. I wonder if this guy still own an old Ford.

His remote TFI solution slightly differs from mine. I did not want to extend the TFI connector so I placed the module on an aluminium plate attached to a bracket below the air filter housing. I have space on this plate for a fitting the ignition coil. If my current problems are due to the coil I will now move it to this plate. As you know Ford spent many months designing the EA Ed falcons so that most replaceable components are be as unreachable as possible. Probably a way to give their servicing network lots of work. One has to see an old VW or a Fiat to understand how clever engineers can be in making sure almost all maintenance can be done in your garage with a handful of tools
