Good Evening, I have been in your shoes before, however I have figured one thing on the old fords is to change the ignition module first, we had one than ran every day started it one morning it was fine, then that afternoon went to start it and it would not run. Just like you I tried everything, then I changed the ignition module and away it went. I hope this helps some, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Where are the fuel pumps on a 1982 ford f150

Well a 1982 model should have a carb, so there should be a mechanical fuel pump on the side of the block near the front.
Just follow the fuel line from the carb.
1985 was the first year for fuel injection on the 302 engine.

1990 ford bronco with fuel injected 302 idles and revs fine out of gear but has loss of power and pings when in gear and accelerating...

First thing to try would be different fuel. Use a fuel stabilizer and fill with good gas. see if that helps. Also, check the fuel pressure.

Truck won't start unless I add fuel to the carburetor (fuel injected) and there is lots of fuel pressure at the rail but nothing going into the carb. Any idea

From your vid, it looks like you don't have a dedicated EFI system.(electronic fuel ignition) You have what's called a throttle body system. It is a Frankenstein(hybrid) between carburetor/fuel injector system. Most commonly with these trucks, and I love to work on them, there will be a fuel filter located somewhere between the tester, and the throttle body. there could be more than 1 if you aren't the original owner of the truck, someone else could have stacked a couple in line. If that is not the case, it could also be a vacume issue. Good luck.

What all do you need to do to convert a 1992 ford 5.0 out of an f150 from fuel injection to a Carb.? I know that you need a carb, intake, and fuel pump. I'm putting this motor in my 1984 mustang it had a...

There are special electronic fuel pumps you can get for this kind of conversion that wont put to much fuel pressure in the carb and blow the bowls.
As long as the distributer is vacuum advance and for a 302 it should be able to work. The main difference will be the firing order on the truck engine may be different. So you have to make sure your #1 cylinder is at top dead center and route the post on the cap its pointing at to the #1 cylinder and go from there.
The intake and carb you have should also work.

Change a fuel injected engine to carbs. 302 ford want to put it into a 65 falcon

this can be done but you have to make sure the intake you buy will bolt up to the EFI engine which you can find at Summit Racing or Jegs order online or from a catalog they will send you for free where you can also find all the linkage and everything else for the swap.
