IAC or timeing. see if your distributor is loose. if it wiggles is could throw off timeing so bad that it wont even fire (even close to the right time). there is procedures for IAC in ford survice manuals (not hains that i know of)

I have a 91 2.9 that was doing that. It had holes and cracks on the underneath side of the MAS air tube, the top looked fine.
I used electric tape to temporarily patch the holes to see if that was the problem, and it started and would idle again.
