Follow the spark plug wires from the distributor.
Thats if its one of the older F-150s. If it's a 97+ its got a coil pack, not distributor.

4.6 or 5.4. Valve cover is bolted on by 2 bolts. Remove that, and the plugs are right there. They can be a real pain without the right extensions and what-not.

This might help,the plugs are down in the cylinder and have a black cap over them.

I have a 98 4.6 and my plugs are not "under" the valve cover. The plug boots can be a pain in the neck to pull out though! Not a whole lot of room to get your hands in there.

Plugs are under the ignition coils (coil on plug) right at the top of the valve covers. a small bolt holds on each coil, undo the bolt, pull the coil and the rubber boot out and the plugs are way down in there. need a long extension to get to them. Make sure the motor is cold when you take them out, and be careful not to strip the threads
