1997 ford f150 no spark wont start!

I recently took a 4.6 from a 98 e-150 van and put in a 1997 f 150. put new oil pump, bearings, and rings. got everything hooked up and ready to roll. turn over but no spark to any cyl. any suggestions on what it might be.

Could be any of a number of things. Start by making certain all your harness connectors are properly connected.

check to see if you have power to your injectors and coils with the key on. If not find out why. Fuse or Fuselink cable?

Make sure the super fuse on the firewall by the battery is wired correctly. You can easily put the Y connector on backwards and have no power.

I had a similar problem a year ago. I thought it had to be this, then that, then since that didn't work it must be this. Nope, figured it out when I bumped the fuse box with my leg. The fuse for the ignition was not blown, BUT the little metal clips inside the fuse box were loosened. All I needed to do was pull the cover off of the fuse box and squeeze the clip with needle nose. Spent a butt load of money to fix it when it ended up being a $0 fix! ARGH!

Check for a bad PCM power diode. This will fire the PCM relay and also the pump relay.
