Have you tried using another timing light?

That's the only thing I can think of if the light works with the spout in.

The only thing taking the spout out does is cuts the computer control to the timing off. So, unplugging the spout shouldn't make a difference.

Re: question of the decade, will pay for correct answer

i got codes pulled and it was 211, 212. just put a stator in and after clearing the codes i got 212 again which is ignition module circuit failure/SPOUT circuit grounded. i had the TFI checked at O'reily autoparts store three times last week plus twice yesterday and the module keep passing the test. now as far as the SPOUT goes, when i tap into the pink wire with a test light, the engine dies in an instance. when i use the test light to on the pink wire while trying to crank the engine, the engine will not crank. what exactly is a grounded SPOUT? the car is bucking and backfiring and i can't figure out why!!! help!!!
