Question '84 Ford F150/no fire

I own a '84 F150 It has a 300 inline 6.I don't seem to be getting any fire.I have pulled the #1 plug and put it on more than one place on the block and nothing.I then pulled the coil wire put the plug in it and still nothing.I have 2 wires going into the coil neither of the 2 have any spark.I can't figure it out.There is a silver box under my dash(computer box of some sort)may this be my problem?If so how do I check it out?
Any and every comment is appreciated.Thanks Kenny

I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be the power supply. That aluminum box on the wheel well, drivers side. That is where mine was, but I had the 351. It could also be the coil. The coil is the cheaper of the two if you are going to use the trial and error method. Sorry I couldn't be more help, maybe someone else has a better idea.

The coil is more than likely the problem, I would change that first. One other easy thing to replace is the small module on the distributor, can't remember what it is called at the moment.

If you are interested I have a 1984 Wiring Diagrams book for cheap.

Good Luck

Michael

It could very well be the ignition module on the front of the distributor as mentioned above. This is a common item to go out on Fords, I been through several on 3 different mustangs. They are easy to change and cost usaully about $30. I've had some go out while driving and I've had some go out when I tried to start the car which resulted in zero spark, similar to what you described.

ignition

Most common ignition problem with ford is the ignition
module on the distributer.Ford has a recall and has a huge
lawsuit about this problem.It's from the excess heat which
cooks the module.It's rare that a coil goes bad.You can check
the coil with an ohm meter, if it's bad it should read real high
or OL open line.
