Truck died while driving.....

I just recently got a 1995 f350 and like the title says it died the other day while driving. I've changed the cps out with a new one from ford I put new batteries in. I've tried the unplug the icp to see if the truck would start and it wouldn't. When I try to start the truck there is no smoke. A couple people I've talke to said that it could be the fuel pump or the idm popped or even the ipr valve, I've seen on here some of you guys say to check the UVCH out. I'm new to diesels and I need to know how to locate the ipr valve and check the uvch? I emptied the fuel bowl by the valve but the owner before me before me didn't hook the hose back up so now there's fuel sitting on top of the motor I also changed the fuel filter out and there were no black spot on it. I know the guy said he put sea foam in the tanks because it sat for awhile. Also when I get time off this week I'm going to check the hpop level I think I've seen it's suppose to be within an inch from the top. I don't have the tools to pressure test anything yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check for fuel at the schrader valve at the side of the fuel filter assy. It does take a lot of cranking to get pressure to the injectors if it has been emptied. If there is no SEL(service engine light), it is most likely not linked to a part that sends signals to the PCM. It could be fuse 22- which is for the fuel heater(in the base of the filter housing). My fuel pump was the issue and there was no fuel coming into the filter housing. To see if there is fuel coming into the filter housing you can remove the filter and push down in the center of the standpipe there is a valve and take a wire to hold it down. I used a 1/4 inch drive extension to push it down and a short piece of home electrical wire(just the copper) and slid it in the passage (about 3/4' down from top), then cranked engine. No fuel there then either no fuel in tank or pump on engine is no good. It took a lot of cranking once I replaced the pump and I also cleaned the ICP sensor wiring- it is just to the left of the filter housing on the driver side of the engine right where you would be working on the filter and slightly closer to the front of the engine. Mine had oil at the electrical connection, that seemed to fix some issues. Do you have smoke? if yes you have fuel to injectors, if not no fuel. the next thing I think to check would be the IPR.
