SlyWell here's what we found......Again, this 7.4l was missing a cylinder as previously posted by me.

After changing all electrical components, including distributor, pulling and having all 8 injectors cleaned and checked........The NEW distributor cap was internally misfiring. Bought at. Schucks auto supply. It came from Borg Warner too.

All I originally wanted to do was change the cap and rotor.......Truck now runs like a dream.......I'm so happy I can't believe it! Yeh....

Thanks for posting the fix. Sorry that got so involved - bad parts can be a nightmare as we all tend to take them off the suspect list.

Happy Motoring,

Again, thank you for posting the fix but in the future please post to the original thread. Nobody reading this will know any of the rest of the story.

Right - I edited first post as if there's way to combine them now I don't know how.

This is follow up to this thread......

At least that should help find it for those surfing away for answers?
