Does an ignition control module have anything to do with fuel pump functioning?

1987 rangers use a device called a TFI module to control ign. timing , this merely triggers a std. coil to fire the center port of distributor cap , this device only controls the coil to fire but does send a pulse for timing back to ecu this sets the base pulse for fuel injection , but its also affected by manifold Air flow and exhaust O2 amounts (closed loop) , but engine should run in base mode (open loop) fuel timing (but not well) , fuel pump relay is enabled to run via ECU output , Now your year ranger had a tech bulletin out on fuel pumps , seems they had a problem getting them to work after a fuel filter was replaced , something about a false backpressure , no if you have no/low fuel pressure then id look at fuel pump power 1st then fuel pump itself assuming you've already tried a new filter of course

Ignition spark

You need to replace the TFI module (on outside of distributor) and the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.

Not getting fire to distributer on my 1987 Ford F150 truck

You mean no spark on the coil wire to distributor cap? Then test the coil or try a known good coil. If the coil is good, have the ignition module tested at a parts store. Post back for more.

87 f150 driving just quit running now wont start

Do you have spark?? If not replace the Ignition control module (Called the TFI) and remove the distributor and replace the pickup coil inside. Use Motorcraft replacement parts, the aftermarket cheap ones fail really quick, 25 years of experience taught me that.

1987 ford e-350 will not start

Replace the ignition module and the distributor pickup and the connector to the ignition module as well if it is falling apart.I strongly suggest you use only Ford parts, the aftermarket ones are cheaper but fail very quickly in summer heat. The connector must be soldered on and shrink tubed at the solder joints to avoid poor connections and erratic engine idle.
