crank but no start and no smoke
First off let me say I'm brand new to the diesel truck world. I work on a farm with my dad and this is the first truck I've ever bought and was hoping it would last forever. I purchased a 1996 F-250 PSD. On the interstate today though on the way home I just lost all engine power like someone had cut the key off. I had probably went 40 miles.
I know this next part isn't good for the engine butttttttt me and my dad decided to try some ether we use to crank the tractors with on cold mornings. Will run on ether. Drained the fuel filter and turned the engine over and watched it fill back up no problem. Checked the fuel pressure on the schrader valve with a tire gage and went beyond 45 psi (all it could read) The WTS light does come on, I tested every fuse under the hood and dash with my fluke and they all passed, but I am not getting white smoke while turning over which I'm assuming means no fuel to the injectors or injectors arent getting signal idk... I also get a reading on my tach when trying to crank. Suggestions would be great,thanks
