Yeah, I was going to check that first. I haven't checked fuses either. I did run it after I put in the master cylinder (I tested the brakes), so I don't think that's it. It hasn't moved since it ran last, so nothing bumped into it.

Only maybe related oddity is that I was having trouble with the ignition being really hard to turn (like it was glued). I put some WD-40 in the key hole (did not help), before I read that this is a common problem with these fords,but the fix isn't easy (some actuator bar in the column). It is easier to turn when above freezing, so I heated the column with my heat gun to see if that loosened it up. It did help. After doing this, I was able to get it running, so I don't think anything in the column was fried.
