Does your speedometer work? I had squirrels chew the wires going to the speed sensor in the rear end and it triggered the OD light. If it is a bad speed sensor don't get a cheap one, they're junk.

Did you use the old crank counter weight (harmonic balancer)? I've seen them dry up and shift the weight enough that it wouldn't even start.

Holy crap. Who did you buy that truck from? I doubt the cruise control is the only problem.
Seriously, That's a body ground. Make sure it's bonded to the electrical system somehow.!

Doesn't take long for a car to go up in flames! Just think if that was in a garage. Maybe it was the cruise control recall!!

don't even waste your time trying to repair the coil. Replace it with one from the local auto parts store and be done with it. Be gentle and take your time and the repair will last for years.

I would try and find out what made that cylinder fail. You might be able to fix it for under $20 with a spark plug wire or push rod. Don't run it on 5, you'll just do more damage.
