Your distributor cap may have moisture on the contacts in the morning, but it dries out in the afternoon, thereby allowing you to start the vehicle later in the day.

One reason a 1989 F-150 may not start is a bad battery.

Not start or not turn over. The engine needs 3 things to run. Air/Fuel/Spark. The spark must also occur at the correct time. If it will not turn over, supect the battery, starter, ignition switch, or corroded or loose cables.
