Might be your TFI module that's attached to your distributor. It's the grey or black candy bar shapped box/plug on the side of the dist. Is this what's making the noise? Replacing that would fix your problem.

Tom,is right..This is a normal occurrence,with ford products,in that time period..To fix this,permanantly,go to your local ford dealer,and ask for the module isolation harness..This allows you to install the module on the radiater support,thus allowing air-flow to keep it cool..
