The timing chain puts the crankshaft and camshaft in time or sych. If it is off or blows, the timing is off. If the vehicle runs, it's very poorly.

Pull off the distributor cap. If the rotor turns, the timing is "OK".

Start there and with my "The Basics" below. Let us know.

FYI, whenever anyone refers to a Ford as a fine vehicle, we all KNOW it's sarcasm.
