1996 F-350 7.3 wont start

Did this troubleshooting: replacing the CPS; there is no water in fuel; HPOP has good level; Batteries are good, Glow plugs good; no smoke when cranking; ether test gave no smoke but closer start up; fuses and relays good; the fuel has good pressure to injector pump but not to injectors.. any ideas??

Is there anyone who has had this problem??? I think it is either the brain or the injector pump.

1994.5 - 1997 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums Here is a link to the diesel page for your truck. You would get more response by posting the problem there.
The glowplug relay is known to fail, have you tested that?
Also if air has entered the fuel system, like after a fuel filter change it can take a lot of cranking on the starter to get it all bled out.
However post on the Power Stroke page and you are sure to get help.
Good luck.
