The 5.0 doesn't have a separate crank position sensor but it does have a Hall Effect PIP sensor inside the distributor that acts both as a crank sensor and as a cam position sensor. When this component begins to fail, the engine will randomly stall (tach falls to zero) without spluttering and restart after a few seconds or minutes. As the problem gets worse, the stalling becomes more frequent and the engine ultimately becomes difficult or impossible to start. Failure of the TFI module can produce identical symptoms but usually its demise is more rapid.

What parts did you use as replacements? The reason I ask is that it won't be the first time that a "new" part has turned out to be a dud.

That could be the problem. I suggest you either try a brand new genuine Ford unit or borrow a used distributor from a friend that's known to be good.

Bad O2 sensors will only cause poor fuel consumption, not a no start or stalling problem.

dont just start throwing parts at the car... A lean condition is often caused by a decent sized vacuum leak, which our cars are notorious for

Does this also apply to the 83-93 5.0 foxes? I tried looking up crank position sensor by car/model (1990 mustang) and came up with no results however when i looked it up via engine (302) it came back with a part number.. it did however use a 96 Bronco as the intended car.. anybody know something i dont??

It certainly applies to 86-93 Foxes. I don't know if it still applies to non-roller block 5.0's though.
