First of all, if the intended use of this truck is to live its entire life in Austria, may I suggest that the owner order a whole box of FA-1778, FD-4604 and FL-2016 filters to used as needed. I don't know what the fuel quality is like in Austria, but I will say that the cetane rating of the fuel needs to be in the low to mid 40s for this engine to run at its optimum. That being said, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the owner order a whole case of Ford/Motorcraft PM-22-B and PM-23-B additives as well as the Ford/Motorcraft 10W30 CJ-4 rated engine oil. I am certain that any Ford dealer will jump at giving you a huge discount if you order it in bulk quantities.
Now, in answer to your question, you need to install a scan tool that can read live data, and pull up the following information listed below:
FICM_L: should read 11.0 to 12.0 volts at key-on/engine-off and remain steady while you crank the engine.
FICM_M: should read 47.5 to 48.0 volts at key-on/engine-off and remain steady while you crank the engine.
FICM_V: should read 11.0 to 12.0 volts at key-on/engine-off and remain steady while you crank the engine.
ICP V: should read 0.18 to 0.25 volts at key-on/engine-off and climb to minimum 0.8 volts while you crank the engine.
ICP: should read 0 psi at key-on/engine-off and climb to minimum 500 psi while you crank the engine over.
IPR Duty Cycle: should read 14.84% at key-on/engine-off and climb to around 50% as you crank the engine over.
FICM_SYNC: should read "NO" at key-on/engine-off and change to "YES" when you crank the engine over.
SYNC: should read "NO" at key-on/engine-off and change to "YES" when you crank the engine over.
V_PWR: should indicate around 12 volts at key-on/engine-off and drop to no lower than 9.5 volts while cranking the engine over.
RPM: should indicate around 175 to 200 as you crank the engine over. Any slower, and it's not cranking fast enough.
Fuel pressure spec is 56 psi, and no lower than 45 psi under load. This can be measured by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to the secondary fuel filter housing port that requires a 6mm allen key to remove.
EVERYTHING I've listed above, is what is needed to achieve a 6.0L engine that starts. You now need to find out which of the above is missing.
