    Electrcal parts generally will fail in the first 90 days if they are going to fail due to faulty elctrical parts. You should have contacted mechanic immediately to get himto warraty the parts. Now I am afraid it is too late after sitting for a year. Have you checked ignition system for spark at spark plugs. also, can you verify if their is any fuel pressure in the fuel rail. also may want to pull a plug and see if it is wet with fuel as 84 bronco was bad to flood the engine due to faulty fuel regulator valve.

How to fix the timing on the distributor in a 1984 bronco 2?

I doubt its the timing.
What you describe sounds more like a lack of fuel problem.
Fuel pressure, throttle position sensor, or something else.
To actually check the timing you put the ignition in test mode and use a timing light on #1 cylinder.

Had rev. on bronco 2 1984 c5 yesterday not today chris

Sounds like, unfortunately, that your reverse gear went out. The only way to get it fixed is to take it to a transmission speciality repair shop to have the gear replaced. Also a very expensive job, could be as much as $1000 to $1500.

No power,no dash lights,no power to fuse box or ignition switch

Check your fusible links. There will be one main one at the starter relay. You'll find it bolted to the fender nearest your battery (passenger side). One link controls the majority of the power in the bronco. A word of caution though... If you replace it and your new link blows again, you have a short somewhere that you'll have to track down.

What is the firing order for a 1984 ford bronco 2

Now you need to know which cylinder is which. If you stand at the front of the truck looking at the engine, the number 1 cylinder is on the left closest to you. The left bank has cylinders 1-3-5 and the right bank has 2-4-6. So number 1 is at the left front and number 6 is at the right rear.

Changing electric system on 2.8 engine

You will need the Duraspark ll ignition system from a late 70's Ford 2.8. I used the 78 Mustang ll to order the parts when I did my 84 Bronco ll 2.8.
You will need the distributor, rotor, distributor cap and adapter, and the ignition module. You can use the TFI coil that was on the 2.8. you will also have to replace the feedback carb with a non feedback one. A Motorcraft 2150 will work.
For more help is a site dedicated to Ranger based vehicles(Ranger, Bronco ll and Explorer). They have a very extensive Tech Library. Membership to the site is free and the forums and Tech Library can be viewed without becoming a member.
Look in the Tech Library under "Ignition/2.8 duraspark conversion.
