Broke down in an RV park and stranded. no start

I am broke down @ an RV park because my 2001 excursion 7.3 wont start. I have hand tools, and a powerprobe III w/voltage readout. I have no scanner.

facts: the engine block has 2,000 miles on it
the heads have 240,000 on them.
the cps is 8 months old
the truck uses coolant but no leak is seen and the oil stays clean
the truck almost feels like it nearly hydro-locks for the first few cranks after sitting for hours.
the truck starts and runs on ether but wont run w/o the spray
the fuel bowl fills with diesel after being drained
the oil pressure gauge comes up during cranking so the hpop res is full

I think there is no or little fuel being injected
I think the injectors may be leaking coolant in to the cylinders

could be the HPOP
could be electrical (IDM or sensor, etc...)
could be fuel pressure

I need to know what sensors' wires I need to probe and what voltages I need to see.

Thanks in advance
Dan

something else to try unplug the icp sensor in the left oil gally and see if she will start if so the ipr is going bad. im not sure if there is a way you could check the idm with volt meter.

Let's start simple. Where are you at? I bet there is over a million RV parks in the United States. Can you narrow it down for us? Maybe one of the members on here is close to you and can bring you a scan tool. Or maybe someone close to you has Auto Enginuity on there laptop.

What I am getting at is yes we can help by telling you the what if's or could be's. But it is a lot better if you can get hands on help.

I tried the ICP unplug - no dice.

Hands on would be perfect. I am at the Whiskey Flats RV park in Hawthorne, NV
