Put head new head gaskets in now come to start it and i have spark and fuel and i have the firing order rite but it wont start it acts like its out of time??? I will get a backfire from time to time when...

I am not familiar with this engine, but, it sounds like the valve timing.
Have you fitted the correct camshafts to the correct place. I had a customer who had messed with his Jag, same kind of fault, turned out he had put the camshafts in the wrong position and head side.
Check the valve timing first, then remove the rocker covers and check those camshafts, this should help to find the problem.

I put new gaskets in a 1990 5.0 f150. It cranks good but wont start. It has compression, gas and spark. What is wrong/or needs to be checked?

Your timing is off. Did you have the distributor out when you changed gaskets or maybe took the plug wires off?
