won't start

My 95 f250 (200,000+ miles) will crank but won't start. I'm able to drift start it and then it runs fine. Replaced the starter first, then the IPR, but no change. Checked the level in the HPOP and it was low so I added some oil, still can't get it to start. Any ideas on what to do next???

I never heard that term used before One thing to check is to put a voltmeter on the batteries and crank over the engine and see what kind of draw is in the starting circuit. If your batteries drop below 10.5 volts the truck won't start.

Checked the voltage when cranking the engine and it read 11. Cables are o.k., which relay do I need to check. Replaced the CPS about a year ago and it's still working fine.

I was talking about the starter relay, but I guess it has to be working if it turns over, sorry. How long does it take to drift start? Do you have to pull it off or just push and pop?

Just push and pop the clutch, fires up and runs fine. Went ahead and replaced that starter relay but no change.
