Sounds like the fuel pump is not working. I would find myself a repair manual and start reading about troubleshooting. If not interested in that I would call a repair shop.

How do i get a 1986 ford f-150 with a efi 302 (5.0) engine and auto trans to restart after running out of fuel?

When you turn on the key, the fuel pump starts and runs for one second. Under normal circumstances this is long enough the bring the fuel pressure in the fuel rails up to spec. But it is not long enough once you run the fuel system dry. The easiest way to remedy this is to turn your key on and off six to eight times with 2~3secs interval. If there is no problem in the system, this will get the fuel pressure up in the rails and the engine will start.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped

keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.
