New truck, now doesn't start

Well I picked up my first psd two days ago and it needed a serpentine belt, so I put one on...and now the truck doesn't start. I don't know anything about power strokes so I have no idea where to start to look. All of my diesel experience is on 1st gen cummins and these are vastly different. This is a '95 f250 with a 7.3l 215000 miles on it. From what I gather on this site it seems like the crank sensors and injector drive modules are a lot of culprits for no start conditions, are there any tale tell signs to show me which it could be? Or maybe something else to look at? I started the truck yesterday with no issue, but I did have it turned off with the radio on for about 20 minutes..and when I went to start it again it cranked and didn't start until the second try. The wait to start light cycles normal and there is no check engine light on if that makes any difference

for one its a cam sensor not crank,dont worry youre not alone,to the cam sensor,one is to believe,that if the tach.moves,the cam sensor is operating,as far as i.d.m.,ive been told to inspect innerds of it,water is main culprit,other is inspect oil level in hpop,1/4 inch from top or close to

The tach does not move while cranking. Is that the sure fire way to tell that it is the cps? Where are those located on these motors?

Well I put the cam sensor in, and checked the fuses and still no start. Tach still does not move when trying to start it. Maybe the glow plugs are bad? I don't have a plug on the truck to plug it in. The wait to start light comes on for about 5 seconds and goes back off and it's 50 degrees here. I know my cummins took longer than that but I don't know anything about these power strokes. Need some more help!

time to change the fuel filter. differential pressure may have climbed. could have water in it also. but change the filter, you should be fine.
