I'm having occasional hot start issues and decided to check the timing to correct or eliminate that as the source of the problem. I was looking for the spout and all indications were that I would find a square grey plastic piece in the end of a 2 wire connector (1st picture)and I couldn't find that. I did locate a round plastic connector with 1 wire entering and exiting (2nd picture) and in researching I located the photo with the round spout. Very little description with the picture other than spout and 460. The 2 pictures were copied from the net and aren't from my vehicle
I'm fairly certain the round thing I located is the spout and the question I have is do I just disconnect it to check static timing?

I'd have to check wiring diagrams, but the shorting bar (Ford's name for the grey connector) is in a different circuit, which you can tell from the red wires. SPOUT is always a yellow wire, usually with a green tracer.
