I need some help. I have a 1979 ford f-150 400m. The motor is one year old and everything is new. Last Monday I drove it to work and it ran great. After work it wouldn't start. Today I replaced plugs, plug wires, cap and roder button, coil, pick up coil, and ignition module. It is getting fuel and spark from the coil but that's it. What do you guys think? Any advice is appreciated.

if its getting fuel and spark it should run...is it a 2bbl motorcraft carb? how old is the carb? if you spray starting fluid in the carb will it start? how old is the fuel pump? are you getting spark at the spark plugs?
