1987 Ford Truck 1Ton Need Lots of Help

We have fire to coil, but no spark to the distributor. There is a clicking noise by the Master cylnder, The truck will turn over but will not start.
We changed the ignition switch, Distributor cap, Distributor module, plug wires, and coil pack still no spark to the distributor. Help

The Battery is new. We have changed the Distributor, New Coil, Spark Plugs and wires. We have changed everything electrial that we know of, and still no spark

I've been doing some thinking about this. I remember many years ago, my '88 jsut quit running on my way home from work one morning. After letting it sit for a bit it did restart and I finally nursedit home. Once home it refused to start anymore. Had the ame symtems as your truck. Towed it to a local garage, where they found the computer went bad. After they changed that, I had no more problems with the truck.

Have you checked all your ground wires?
