Icon5 1994 SPOUT in-line connector location

I recently aquired a 1994 Ranger 2.3/5-Speed from a friend. It has a rough idle and I'm checking the timing with a light. I need some help finding the SPOUT in-line connector. I see several "interrupt" looking plugs around the ECM. Does anyone know the location or wire color for a 94?

Look on the driver side inner fender and you'll find a group of 3 connectors that join the engine bay harness to the engine harness. Near them, there should be the SPOUT jumper plug on the connector with 2 pink wires.

Thanks rwenzing. Found it. Now I have confirmed what I thought....the timing's off. With the SPOUT disconnected I'm at 14 degrees instead of 10. I pulled the peek-hole cover off the the timing cover, set it to TDC and this is what I see.........



Kinda hard to see, but it's off 1.5 to 2 teeth. (Sounds like part of I joke I once heard...)

It has a rough idle but otherwise runs good.
