no spark could be any number of things start by checking fuses also check if you have power at the coil also check remove dist. cap and make sure rotor turns let us know the results

I think Ford uses an ignition module on the distrubtor It's an black box with some wires coming out, it might be fried inside. Maybe stop at a junk yard and get one, RockAuto shows a new one costs about $65.
