    Does it turn over and not start, or does it do nothing at all. Also when you cleaned the motor did you use a pressure washer or a garden hose.

Check for moisture under distributer cap. If there is, leave the cap off for 1/2 hour or an hour to evaporate, reinstall cap. Please post your results.

Truck cranks but wont start

When it stops check the fuel pressure. Also check for fault codes as this maybe ignition related as well.

Truck wont start after changing air filter

I am not aware of anything connected to the air filter box that would keep the engine from starting.
If you unplugged a sensor it should still start, just run rough and the check engine light would stay on.
Its possible a wiring harness got unplugged or something got shorted and you blew a fuse but thats not likely.
If you don't see anything obvious around the air filter, and all of the fuses are good, you may have to start from zero and find out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure.

My 1982 Ford F150 is completely electricly dead. No brake lights no ignition, head lights of dash. Battery is good with new cables, ignition lock, ignition switch, starter relay and electronic regulater....

It sounds to me that if your battery is good and you are not getting any power to flow thru out the truck, I would check my negitive battery cable to be absoulutely sure it is ggrounded. Power will not flow if the truck is not properly grounded.
