Will Not Start

I have a '96 F250 with a 460, the wife started it the other day started to back out and it died. She said it sounded like it ran out of gas (she was on her way to a gas stating), so i put gas in it but it will not start (yes gas in tanks).
I have spark and 36 psi on the fuel pressure so any help would be appreciated.

did you try to shoot ether in it and see if it does anything? dont mean to sound ridiculous if it does, but i know id be trying anything. to me its an air or timing issue. maybe the ecm? not much exp. with a 460 tho, actually none to be honest. just hoping you can get it going, been in your shoes and its frustrating, my old 83 302 did that and it was the timing gears. hope thats not your case.

well finally got it running, it was a combination problem believe it or not. Even though I had spark it was not enough to start it so replaced the coil and it would start with ether but would not stay running. Started looking at the fuel lines and decided to change the filter just for the hell of it found out the fuel line had a small hole in it. Thanks for the help
