I am very sorry your having this issue with your vehicle.

I will try my best to answer all of your questions.

However, before we get started, please let me mention a few things.

1. If at any point you would like to speak on the phone, please feel free to request a phone call on your end and I can call you right away.

2. If you dont understand any technical terms or anything that I mention (component tests or theory or operation), please let me know and I will provide you with a more in debt explanation or answer.

3. Please understand that I am here to help you any way I can.

Are you saying that there is spark going into the distributor cap but no spark coming out of the distributor cap to the spark plugs or wires? If so, the new distributor cap and rotor are faulty, provided the distributor rotor is turning while cranking the engine. (Of course, be sure the rotor is not spinning free on the distributor shaft for any reason.)

I used a spark tester and it flickers when attached to coil plug wire. When used from distributor cap to plugs I get nothing
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Rotor does turn while cranking engine.
Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 3 months ago

Sounds like your new cap and rotor need to be replaced under warranty.
