Try spraying a small amount of starting fluid into the the engine should run momentarily If NOT check ignition system again. 4.9 / 300 6 cylinder one of Fords best designs. Lots of Torque, good economy , known to LAST along time.

Tried starter fluid into air intake side still no start

Have you checked the distributor/timing is so equipped. If no start with starting fluid, could be the problem.
