I just ordered wires, cap and rotor.
Already put new plugs in it, helped a bit but still has a slight miss.
Buddy had one of these vortecs a while back put 350k+ on it and sold it,(he got a LLY damx) still ran great.

Wire cap N' rotor. Three words I have omitted from my vehicle discussions....

Its a 350 or 454? The flat crab caps are a bad design when they are new and they only get worse when you get some miles on them so good chance if its not new that that will help.



I think they go rid of the central injector spider thing by 99 so it should have more normalish injectors which is a good thing. You still have to take the intake apart to get to them but at least you can replace them individually if you find a bad one. At this age fuel pressure regulator could be an issue too. I think that also is inside the intake. Its been a while since I had one of those apart.

I think it has the spider injector setup, haven't been able to do any work on it my back is so jacked up I can barley walk. Oh to be young again.

The vortec motors in the 88-98 (00) style trucks retained the spider harness, with only 2 injectors, only car motors got the MPI(multi point injection) motors that could have more then 2 main injectors.

... In Arizona ... I don't think from it.



Look at the rear quarter's ... it's had a tough life, front clip is probably a replacement IMO.

Agreed. Truck may have come from AZ, but iím more inclined to believe it spent active duty near a salty body of water.
