Are you saying you're getting spark out of the coil?

change cap and rotor and wires if you havent done so yet and put dielectric grease on the center point where the rotor turns and on the wire ends oh yea plugs also.

Thats a sweet looking Ranger man...sitting still or not!

I would check spark at the plugs. If its going to the distributor and not leaving it, somethings up with it or that TFI. Mine tested fine even though it was crapping out on me. I got fed up and just replaced it. Runs like a new truck!
