Would help to know what you have replaced, but I bet one thing you haven't checked, which is the distributor gear that drives the distributor shaft so the rotor can spin to distribute the spark. Check by taking off the distributor cap, and try turning the rotor. If it spins, then the pin sheared off of the gear. Common problem on older Fords.
