I have a 1987 ford ranger with a 1983 model 2.0L in it with a 1 barrel. One day i was on my way to work and it just died on me. I replaced the plugs, wires, ignition control module, cap, and the rotor button before I realized that the distributor wasnt tuning. So I pulled the distributor out and the gear on the bottom was sheared very badly, I replaced the whole distributor and it still wont turn. Somebody PLEASE HELP!!!

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.
try to replace the coil and all the spark plugs also make sure that the plugs are gapped right. that info will be on the evaporation sticker onthe core support in the front of the truck under hood. I think it is 0.004 not 100% sure on that. I hope that helps
This works on chevy's,I don't know about fords.Take a long screwdriver, with a flashlight, if there is enough room, guide the screwdriver in the distributor hole, there should be slot on the top of the oil pump shaft, stick screwdriver in slot and turn oil pump shaft until it lines up with the distributor shaft of the position you want it in.
