The most likely cause for your issue is a bad PIP as well. Code 211 is telling you a good story here

Rockauto has a brand new Motorcraft DA2079 distributor for $91.

since you have spark, and it will run on ether, you should focus on the fuel system.
fuel spraying (or dribbling) out of the schraeder valve isn't good enough. you need to check fuel pressure with a gauge.
what engine do you have ?

96 f250 351w 5.8. Cranks no start. HELP

Thanks again for all your help, and hopefully this will help someone else! Mike.
If this pickup in the distributor was going bad would it cause truck to miss at idle horribly then get to the point I'm at now with cranking but just won't start. I replaced in tank fuel pump. Also replaced FpR have filter on way (won't fix problem coz old filter had zero sediment in it). Originally it was missing super bad one day to point of having to 2 foot it at a red light. I parked it and each time I'd start it it would idle worse and worse then wouldn't idle at all just dies. I had to flutter the pedal like a mad man just to get it to stay running to move it in the yard. until right before I changed fuel pump. Then it would crank fast and act like it wanted to start but just wouldn't fire. Or I could almost hear it trying to run like sht while cranking but if I let off key it wouldn't be running. Is it hard to change the pick up in the distr?? I can get the module for about 40$. I really thought fuel was problem since I had 3 old pumps in the truck when I bought it lol. Anyways I'd really appreciate the help here guys. I'm not a novice but don't keep up with all the abbreviations so......
