ok check to make sure your distributor is not loose sounds like you off time or your carburator is shot. Are you looking for the sevice manual?

Sorry!
forgot to tell you that I replaced with a NEW rebuilt Distributor, and cleaned out the VNN carburator ( it was clean inside the bowl, no sediment or dirt).
Yes I am currently trying to find a service manual for the scout, have just puchased one on ebay.
thanks for any further info

Here is a resource alot of people dont know about.

 

 

In bigger cities the libraries have online manuals. you can access them with a library card. some times they carry chilton or espco.

I also want to let you know that there is a forum for every make and model car. They talk about lots of repair. Usually you can search your issue.
