Need help 89 international 7.3

Just had. Friend call me. He s out of town. He wants me to go see why this old uhual rental box truck international with a 7.3
He said it was an 89. Dont know what years international did what. He said its a 7.3
According to him, it ran fine when parked 6 months ago. Batteries were charged, still no start. I am very familiar with 99-03 7.3 motors. Whats a likely culprit for this to not start? Any insight appreciated.

If it is an 89 it is a IDI non turbo model. I can't remember when they went from the 6.9 to the 7.3 but it could be either. I would post this in the IDI section or have a search on in the IDI section on Oil Burners. 6.9L IH & 7.3L IDI Diesels there are a lot of IDI guys over there.
