1985 Ford F150 302;5.0;FI - no fire to the distributor; the truck jumped time and needed to replace the timing chain however I cannot get any fire to the distributor cap. I replaced the coil, inigition module, distributor, cap, and rotor button. Also, current/fire is going thru both sides of wires comming out of the coil is that good?

Please describe the "fire going through both sides of the wires." That doesn't sound normal to me at all. Check the distributor cap for cracks.

Is your coil hooked-up correctly-The spark will come out of the coil head thru the coil wire and into the center tower of the distributor cap from there it gets distributed to the sparkplugs in the firing order sequences
