Possibly Ignition module and check the small black ground wire at the battery for broken or badly corroded. This is the PCM ground.

if your 1987 ford f150 isn't getting spark from the coil to the distrubutor, then check the connector that clips on the top of the coil. it's probably loose and isn't getting a good connection.
