E 350 Quigley Just Picked Up Was Sitting No start

I just picked up a 98 E-350 Quigley 4X4, when I looked at the truck it would not start, previous owner said it sat for a few years, he was gonna make a camper out of it, but his enthusiasm fizzled, so he sold it. He said it ran fine when he parked it, to make sure I wasn't looking at a bad motor, we fired it right up with starting fluid, then shut it down quick, so I'm assuming it's a fuel problem. The most obvious I'm gonna swap out the filter, but I can't believe it would be clogged from just sitting, but who knows. He also said it has plenty oif additive in the fuel. Anyone have any other ideas why no fuel from sitting.??

dude i love those Quigley conversions!!! Sounds like a definite fuel issue. Check fuel bowl, fuel pump (pretty sure its still got the mech pump on it). It doesn't sound like an injector issue to me, my current truck sat for sometime unstarted before i got it and it runs like a raped ape... I wouldn't think that it full of whats mentioned above... GOOD LUCK and let us know what you find!!!

by bowl you mean the bowl the filter sets in, maybe I can fill it up with seafoam and see if it fires and hopefully it will blow thru the injectors, what issue did you find with yours after it sat, would sitting wipe the pump or is it maybe just clogged up?

Common issue is water in the IDM (injector driver module.) It's on the driver's side inner fenderwell. You'll probably have to unbolt the coolant tank and set it aside. Once you get the IDM box out, shake it to see if it's waterlogged.

What does the IDM look like, big, small, wires etc.?

It looks like an engine computer. A aluminum box about 6x8x2" with a large connector on one end.
