I'd check for a vacuum leak, the idle mixture. Also the check valve on the brake booster.

It might be the float but if you don't have any trouble getting the truck up to speed then it's likely fine. The trouble is more likely to be in the idle circuit. The curb idle should be 500 to 750 RPM depending on if it's standard or automatic ( higher for auto). If that's okay then you may have to play with the idle screws. Turn them both the same amount, 1/4 turn at a time. Turn them once and then rev the engine 2 or 3 times and let it idle down suddenly. You will have to re-adjust the curb idle to keep it at the right spot as well.
If the truck is an automatic, once you have it set up so it runs right then put it in gear and try again although that will probably only need the curb idle adjusted if it stalls. hope this helps.

Ned to now wat the firing order for dist cop shood be for a 1987 ford f100 pick-up truck 300sixcylender stick shift model#333


The F100 ended in 1983, so there is some confusion on your 1987 Ford F100. The F150 started in 1983 and was available in 1987, but not the F100. You have this listed under the 1981 Ford F100 category.
The 300 CID = 4.9L In-Line (Straight) 6-Cylinder.
In order to best answer your question I have included both the 1981 F100 4.9L and 1987 F150 4.9L below. The only difference is with the Distributor Cap Configuration and Connections.

For the 1981 F100 300cid=4.9L:
Firing order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
...6
...5
...4
...3
...2
...1
(front)
Distributor:
...(back)
.........4..[.]-clip

...................1

For the 1987 F150 300cid=4.9L:
Firing Order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
..6
..5
..4

Distributor:

Transmission for a 1978 Ford F100


The transmission should have the label "FMX" upon the center lower drivers side of the body. This was Ford's largest and heaviest tranny they ever made for commercial(privately owned) trucks.They only produced this model for 8 years.

1980 F100 with a straight 6 cyl. Won't idle.


The vacuum comes from the intake manifold and ported vacuum comes from the carb above the throttle plate. You might have a leak at the carb gasket or intake manifold gasket. Spray some car cleaner or WD40 around the gaskets and vacuum lines while the engine is running and when you hear the idle speed up, you've found the leak. You will need to install the rebuilt carb first, and you should tighten any loose intake manifold bolts. Don't overtighten them. Also check the EGR valve because it could cause the engine to stall at idle. A good tune up might be needed too. I've seen some of those engines run real rough when the ignition timing was off.
