97 F250 won't crank

I just recently got a 1997 F250 with 300,000 on it.

I got the truck with the Transmission already out.
I was told that some trucks won't start with the tranny out but some will. I'm getting it rebuilt, but when I turn the truck over to try to start it nothing happens, besides the batterie needle moves fuel moves an wait to start, radio an A/c that works on it turns on so I have power to it.
But the truck doesn't make a sound.

Is it normal that when you turn the truck over you can't hear the fuel pump?

It doesn't need the transmission. It does need to have the neutral or clutch (depending on tranny type) safety switch bypassed.

Did it have an automatic or manual transmission?

The engine is louder than the fuel pump. If you're thinking you'll hear an electric pump run when you first turn the KEY, before turning the engine over, there is no such pump.

The guy I bought it from said that when he starts it it will drive fine, but when it gets to normal tranny temp it wouldn't pull it's self anymore. So he took the tranny out.
It's a auto
I do believe it's a E40D.
Now I have the tranny in my truck I hate to spend the money to get it rebuilt if there isn't anything wrong with it.

Yes, it's an E4OD (aka E4OhDear, E4DOA....).

So does that mean you've re-installed it? Did you connect the trans range switch/sensor? If that means something else, if the tranny is still out of the truck, you need to determine which two terminals on the TRS connector are for the starter safety lockout (no access to my EVTM during the day, sorry), and jumper those two terminals.

Other option, just to test it out, is to turn the key to RUN, and jumper the starter relay on the passenger-side inner fender.
