Your going to run into more hurdles than just the starter and coil.however the starter you can wire the cellinoid to the ignition and just run a power lead to your battery. the coil you can easily run to a standalone ignition system such as an msd or mallory setup. you may want to look into a painless wireing harness, you can find them online, they can make you anything you need and it will be a plug and play setup, no head scratching needed. and the underhood will look clean rather than a rats nest of unused wires and random wires running here and there.

You will need to determine if you are lacking spark or fuel when the engine is warmed up and fails to start. It could be the coil, ignition module, a relay, or various other components.

Nothing happens when turn key. 1984 ford f150 inline 6

Check the small wires to the starter relay for power when the key is turned to start. The small wires activate the relay. If the small wires have power, most likely the relay is bad.

You can bypass the relay with heavy jumpers. Make sure stickshift is in neutral or Park if its an automatic. If starter turns good with jumper, relay is bad.

2.5 cranks ,has no spark

Check the fuse and relay in the fuse panel for a blown fuse. Then unplug the power wire to coil and test for power to coil. If you are getting power to coil then it will be the coil causing the problem. Use an inline tester to connect between the coil tower and sparkplug wire to correctly see if the coil is putting out fire. Could be bad sparkplug wires or plugs. Hope this will help you.

Need firing order diagram 1985 F150 inline six

Easyer to explain then it is to get a diagram. Standing facing your truck cylinders are numbered 1 to 6. The front most cylinder being one and the back one closest to the cab is 6. The blackened terminal on the distributor cap indicates the number one spark plug wire position. In clockwise order from the blackened terminal firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4.
