how did you verify the no spark at a spark plug or coil. how did you find that the crank sensor was at fault did you test more than one coil. how fast doe the engine crank and get any codes pulled from the truck.

A cam sensor will not cause a "no spark" condition. At worse, it will cause multiple starting attempts as the PCM guesses at injector timing in the absence of a valid cam signal.

Since a cam sensor won't cause a solid "no start" anyway, it doesn't much matter.

After rereading his original post I would check fuel pressure next since you don't think it is cam related. Still don't have an answer on how he determined he has no spark..
