If it ran before you changed the timing chains and tensioners you may have the timing off. If it is very far off valves will strike the pistons and you won't be happy. Timing chain service on OHC Fords has to be done exactly correct or you will have issues.

If you don't have any vacuum leaks and fuel pressure is good, your probably 1 tooth off on the timing chain. This usually happens when you install the timing chain while the slack is on the opposite side of the tentioner
