Angry 2006 6.0L No-Start after STC replacement

2006 F-350, 6.0L PSD, 4x4, lariat, crew cab, long bed, with 130,000 mi.

Ok guys, I really hope you guys are able to help me here. A few months ago my STC fitting failed and cracked my rear engine cover. Since then I have replaced the STC fitting, rear engine cover, oil cooler, IRP valve, dummy plugs, oil and fuel filters, etc. After months of having it in my garage I finally got it all back together. I went to crank it, cranks good, but no start.... boo.

I do have a P0677 code (glow plug #7) could that cause a no start issue? Since I did the fuel filters I suspected a fuel problem as well. I checked the engine compartment fuel filter bowl and it did have fuel in it.

My other issue is that I do not have a computer. I'm thinking about getting the Banks iQ with the tow programmer. I want to get this one for monitoring my engine while driving and because it can do a lot of different things, but i'm not sure if it can do all of the diagnostic stuff that I need it to do right now. I've heard a lot about the SCT and might consider that one. I do have a nice Blue Point multimeter thought. hopefully the meter will be enough to get me started right now though.

If anybody could point me in the right direction on how to start tracking down this no start issue I would greatly appreciate it. I'm ready to have my truck back on the road. Thanks PS.O

Can you get compressed air in your icp sensor, the fitting in the HPO rail passenger side?

if you've had the truck torn down that much, then its going to take for ever to start. Throw a battery charger on it and keep trying.

^^^ I agree you need to crank for at least 15 seconds rest for 90 seconds then continue the cycle because you need build pressure. Put a charger on her and keep trying you get her fired.

Boy I hope it's that easy. I have to run to work now, but I'll put a charger on before I go and try it when I get home tonight. This may be a stupid question but does it matter whether I charge the auxiliary battery or the Driver's-side battery? I assume they will just equalize each other.

Thanks for your help guys.

I do not think it matters just put on a 10 amp charge and it should be ok, at least that is what I did. Keep cranking just make sure to rest 90 seconds to let the starter cool off but you need to crank for at least 15 seconds. If everything is right she will fire.

If you want to purge your Hpop system, take out the icp, put your finger on it and crack it, the air will come out and you will feel the oil pressure comming up

Talking

Well guys, went out this morning and cranked for 15 sec. on, 90 sec rest. Fired right up on the third try. I didn't even have to purge the hpo system. Thank you so much for the help guys. I'm glad it was a simple solution.... After I got the whole engine torn down and rebuilt that is. Anyway thanks again guys.
