Hi, i got my cam last september and has been working pretty well until early March. whenever i try to shoot using flash, the flash indicator keeps on blinking red and no photo could be taken. however, when i turned off the flash, i can still take photos. what could be the problem?

This often depends on the shooting mode you are using. It is often on a selection wheel. Say you are in Fireworks mode the flash will not fire. If you get out of a special mode back into normal camera I am pretty sure your flash will not be greyed out.
Easy. When the camera is in normal shooting mode, press the up button (marked with the symbol of a lightning bolt) until the symbol of a crossed out lightning bolt near the top left of the screen turns to an uncrossed lightning bolt symbol. that's it.
if you keep pressing the up button until the lightning bolt symbol has a letter A next to it, the camera will fire the flash only when it thinks it is necessary. this will keep your flash from firing in bright light and therefore save battery charge.
remember when you flipped through your math textbook in the first grade and it had "too much stuff on it"? you think its too much because you aren't used to it. don't be afraid to mess with the settings in order to learn how to use your camera best; you can never permanently damage a camera in changing its settings. the worst that could ever happen is losing all the photos in memory. if anything else goes wrong, you can always return the settings to what they were when you bought the cam in a few button presses (refer to the manual).
Most likely one of 2 things, fuel pump failure or intemitent fault on fuel relay and/or fuse. they can melt rarely though!
Another option is the air mass sensor or MAF sensor that regulates the air to fuel mix, if this is a early 1992 model before september of that year then most likely the engine will run quite rich on fuel, modern fuels are slightly different and less harmful again can cause an issue.
Air or fuel is the ahort of it. also check that there is no holes in the air pipes and that all have a good seal with no leaks taking in too much air.
Firing Order, Small Block & SVO
This is one of the most common questions asked by our Ford customers.
The firing order for the early 221-302 engines and the early 5.0
engines is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. This is the firing order for all prefix
“31” cams and is the standard replacement cam for all early engines.
The later 5.0 engine and all 351 engines are designed to use the
1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 firing order. This is the firing order for all prefix
“35” cams, and cams ordered for these engines should use this prefix.
Other than the firing order, the cams are identical. By changing the
spark plug wiring at the distributor these cams can be interchanged.
