Few Random Question

First being, I went to pick up plug wires, and they asked if the truck was EEC, I assume it means Electronic Engine Control. how do I know if it has it? Its a 91 302.
Second I was under my truck and noticed the previous dipsh*t owner tied the heat sheild for the cc down bc it was falling off. Does it really need to be there? I cant see the heat being an issue, but what about Safety Inspection

You'd have to check with your local Ministry regulations, but I'm going to guess the regs would be more concerned with the catalytic convertor itself being intact and capable of performing it's job more than the heat shield being in place.

Better to have the heat shield removed than hanging there, flopping around until it eventually breaks free and possibly becomes a hazard to whoever's following you at the time. lol

Depending on where you get your MVI done you could yank the cat out and replace it with a straight pipe and they won't care. I know heat shields don't matter at all. We're pretty lax here in NB with emissions stuff.

As for the computer question, I can't really say. I don't know much about Ford's introduction of OBD-I in the trucks (if they even did). All I can say is that after 1996 everything's OBD-II. I guess your best bet is to get a set of wires and see if they fit. If not, then your truck is different than what plugs you have. If that makes sense.

You speak the truth apparently, thanks.
Weird that they would ask me if my truck was EEC at the parts counter when they searched plug wires in their parts. If its a 91 wouldnt it obviously be FI?

It had everyone in the store confused, its Marshland here in Moncton, NB, where the people actually seem to know a little about what they are talking about.
There seems to be a little more to it than just being fuel injected bc some carbed models also had it.
It has to do more with fuel management and troubles assc. with it. The easiest way I figured out how to know is the EEC4 equipped is they have it running directly from the top of the distributor cap to the module coming off the firewall. The non EEC dont have the 9th electrode for the extra wire.

Carb'd models were known as CFI. They had 1 injector which shot fuel into the carb and they did have a computer. My ex's 86 F150 had it.

Also not all ignition control modules are mounted on the fender/firewall. Some are actually mounted on the distributor. That's what that flat square on the side of the distributor under the cap is for.

Any other questions?
