DTC 213 EZ check first;
Ck to see if the SPOUT (Spark Output) connector is missing. da connector is a little "jumper" that fits into two wire connector; located near da distributor (it is removed to adjust timing).

Check to see if it is-place, if connector/wiring is damaged or corrosion is in conn or wiring.

See my partially recovered Bronco web site. Thanks to Mr. Schwim!
