Before you put head on, did you pressure tested it? Head might have a leak. Another issue is improper installation when dead center wasn't aligned. Which causes 1,3 and 5 to misfire. It's Ford engine. Talk to Ford experts

Yes and I also pulled the motor again pulled up what number one and done all the time in the right way the second time any other I'm open for any option here I tried everything

How is pressure on oil pump and fuel pump? Assuming you plugged cables to sparks properly. Coils and sparks are checked and working?

Oil pressure is fine check all Electrical plug multiple times
