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

I have a 1987 ford f150 with a 3.2 liter engine the coil on my truck won't work what do I do and it a 1/2 ton

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.
