Post #11---And timing, originally, I set it by unplugging a wire and setting it at 0. I remember at one point i went to check my timing after all this happened. I unplugged the wire, and the truck wouldn't start. Then i started it, and unplugged it and it went into a violent fit until it finally died, even after i plugged the wire back in after it was running. I haven't tried messing with that since that episode, because it ran fine was i cleared the computer.

Are you talking about setting the ignition timing? If so, your timing could be way off. 0 degrees is not enough advance. A retarded engine can run hot and do all sorts of crazy things. Please explain your timing method.
