cranks, no start, no codes

Ok guys, time for more help, lol. Truck is and 03 f-350 sd 4x4 with auto and 114,000 miles with 6.0 engine. I finally got the engine installed into the truck and everything buttoned up. Here is a list of what has occured and what has been done:

1) Truck had strong antifreeze smell in cab, low power, and then started smoking white profusly and low on coolant.

2) Removed engine, replace head gaskets(looked good, but did it anyway) added head studs, replaced icp sensor and ipr valve for good measure, replaced oil cooler due to oil contamination in coolant, completely removed and bypassed egr cooler, resealed all injectors(no signs of leakage, was running good prior to this work). Reinstalled and cycled key to instructions given in earlier post.

3) Ok here is the current problem: Engine was had to start at first, but it was trying. Finally kicked off. Spurted at first, then smoothed out. Let idle and warm up a few minutes. Gave it a little throttle a few times after at bit. Last time I reved it up and then released pedal. Upon returning to idle, truck died and will not start unless ether is used(dies as soon as ether is used up. Only did it twice, and I dont want to damage anything)so it has to be fuel I am guessing. I went out last night and purchased an actron scan tool that is supposed to read pids and codes. No codes are reported, but it is not showing ipr pressure, so I cant check it. It actually shows only about 10 pids and most of them are useless for a diesel engine. I am updating the tool right now to see if that will help any. I have tried bleeding the fuel lines at the heads. It is getting fuel to the heads, and does have pressure.

I dont want to just start replacing things, so any help will be greatly appriciated. If I think of anything else I will add it as I go.

so you dont have any fuel pressure? is the oil level correct? and the pid will be icp not ipr for high pressure oil. ipr should be around 20 to 40%while cranking as long as no high pressure oil leaks are present.

need to get the scanner on it and see if its reading icp pressure , make sure it has ficm sync ,a good scanner should show you what you need to find the problem, i dont know much about the actron, also see what the ipr percentage is when cranking

It all good now. No codes was because the POS actron scanner. No start was because of IPR actuator being clogged with trash from HPOP. Replaced both and all is good now.
