Default 89 Ford F-150 Stalling then not starting

My Dad brought over his truck for me to do a tune up on. It stalls sometimes and sometimes when it stalls it wont start for about 10-15 minutes. It also has a very low idle. It also lacks power and gets about 8 mpg. I asked if anything had been done to the truck and he stated that a guy he knows tried to "adjust the idle" while he was in the hospital. It is FI not carbed so im not sure what the guy tried to adjust... maybe the timing?

We have the stuff to do a minor tune up but im thinking that isnt going to solve the problem. I am also going to check the timing.

How do you time these vehicles.. the sticker says to disconnect something but im not sure what they are referring to when timing to 10 degrees BDC.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
