if engine won't crack - dead battery
if engine cranks but won't start - no fuel or spark
fuel reservoir is the fuel tank.
a fuel filter can be inside a housing...

i actually have a 1985 302 efi... there are 2 pumps one one the rail right under drivers door and one in the tank.. there are also two filters... one just behind the pump one the rail.. its actually inside a canister that you open with a oil filter wrench then it has a paper element inside..then there is a inline filter that is actually part of the high pressure line the hose is about 3 feet long and runs from your front pump up to the fuel rail agaist the firewall...this one is really hard to find (Buy) good luck wish i hade a carb

This fuel filter has snap lock type fittings on the ends of the fuel filter, you need a fuel line disconnect tool to remove the filter, you will insert the tool into the hose ends at the snap locks, push in on the fuel line while pushing the tool into the fitting then you can slide the fitting off the fuel filter assembly. Hope this helps

Same problem with my 85 F-150 5.0 EFI---turned out that the fuel pump relay under the hood was teriffically corroded on the inside (I opened up the relay to look inside). When I checked the voltage at the fuel pump it would show 3.5-6 volts instead of 12 volts.
I was thinking fuel blockage or perhaps failure of the in-tank pumps. Sometimes the truck would start and run, othertimes it would neither start nor run. Typically, if running it would stay running until turned off (where the relay had to break).
Changing the green fuel pump relay fixed the problem--12 volts now at the pump and no reoccurance.
Good luck--let me know if this fixed your F-150.

57k miles on a '94, nice...
The transmission should be able to handle a 500lb load and a 500lb tow, you really shouldnt hardly even notice the weight unless you going up some steep grades.
as far as what to look at before going on a long trip, diffenetly get a oil change if you havent in 1500'ish miles (or get one on the road when you get closer to the recommended mileage of 3k miles, which you should hit easy enough on a 11 hour drive to your destination) Perhaps plugs and wires if you havent had at least 1 tune up since driving off the lot. all your fluids, bulbs, fuses(bring extra fuses with you), at least 1 spare tire, tire pressure(35-42psi), and anything else that is general maintance that needs to be done also.
Other then that, you should be fine... Just dont forget to check the gas gauge once in awhile, and she shouldnt die on the way :P
