Take the wire off the coil and check the wire for voltage.while it is disconnected.
If there is voltage now....... the problem is in the dist or coil.
Pull the dist and check for something grounding the system.
Are the points opening?
If there was no voltage in the resistor to dist wire....install a new wire.
TIP. Be careful how you set the coil onto the dist.

SOURCE: point setting on 77 ford
On your 77 there are no points, it is electronic ignition. that is why there is no gap or dwell. the only adjustment you have is the timing. which is 12 degrees before top dead center or (tdc)

SOURCE: point gap setting and timing
sorry my memory is fading. i would gap at 35 and for the timing i used to use a glass of water (sometimes it wasn;t water) put it on the air filter and turn the distributer till it shook the least. of course i had no money ,those days to buy a timing light or manuals....or you might contact/join a old ford club. they are tops for such info...my first car was a ford custom 65......
