Don't attempt it without a manual with specs, you will need special tools like a torque wrench and an angle meter, you will have to get the head measured and probably resurfaced, also do it in a clean enviroment, and make sure all is spotless during reassembly, even a fingerprint on mating surfaces can cause premature failure of gaskets

Just re done top of motor. Everything together and I start it steam dumps out of the exhaust. I believe a water hose is wrong from the radiator somewhere. Need to know how to run the hoses. 89 iroc camaro...

Steam from the exhaust means, unfortunately, that coolant is entering the cylinders, and very little running like that will destroy the rings and pistons. It could be anything from an intake or head gasket leak to a cracked cylinder.

We replaced the theromostat and the radiator but it is still leaking under the car on the drivers side

Leaking water on teh drivers side indicates a cracked block or cracked head in most cases. Unless you have a water injected motor, I don't remember Ford using one, there are no water ports on that side of the motor. It could be the water pump leaking and being pushed back when the vehicle is running so check for leaks around the water pump. You need to check the heads, side of the engine block and the freeze plugs to make sure there are no cracks or leaks around the head gasket seal.

The intake gasket gives trouble on this model. The gasket gets weak and usually lets coolant come out on top of the engine between the rear head and the intake. It will run down the rear of the motor onto the transmission. Fairly large job around 6 hours.

Injection pump trouble

This all sounds like it is a blown head gasket, I would not worry about the top cover and the speed control, until you get the head gasket fixed. The head gasket not being replaced will mean a new motor

F150 5.4 liter v8 running rough, white smoke being exhausted on startup

White smoke while running usually indicates water in the combustion chamber (bad head gasket or cracked head) but white smoke on startup only is usually a sign of unburnt fuel (rich mixture). Either bad injectors, injector seals? Maybe something else That's assuming it's fuel injected

Is it fuel injected? Or carburated?
If it has a carb, did you clean out the float bowels and jets?
If it's injected, you may need to clean or replace the injector nozzles.
Fuel that has been sitting for 2 years can turn to varnish.

And after you replaced the head gaskets, did you do a compression check on the motor?
