Yes...Another i cannot get the engine to fire post..

I bought this truck not running so been doing a crap load of reading and working through the system. Truck hit a cow but stayed running...they drive it on the tow truck and had it delivered to their house. never started again and bought it after this. Truck has been sitting since November for the most part. So here is what i have done

1. bought 2 1000amp/850cca batteries and installed
2. Bought and installed 8 new Bosch glow plugs and verified ohms proper
3. Bought and installed new fuel filter and cap gasket
4. Pulled every fuse and relay and tested with ohm meter all good
5. Tested glow plug relay and seems to be working fine
6. Checked oil in HPOP res and was about one inch from top
7. had an alarm installed but pulled it to eliminate that possible issue
8. have drained the fuel bowl and watch it re-pressurize
9. white smoke coming out tailpipe on crank was observed
10. did check the fuel cut off switch in the pass kick panel and no problem
11. I have the block heater plugged in to see if it starts to test another idea
12. I have the grey cps and while cranking you can see the tach needle coming up and down
13. took off the fuel filter cap and watched while turning over the key...fuel is flowing into the fuel bowl




I have verified the build date and on the driver valve cover it states Jan 6, 1999.

So i am open to any ideas on what to test for next

I'd change the cam sensor just to make absolute certain it's good. Getting any smoke when cranking?

Scanner,,,, Get it on a good scanner and monitor the sensors as it cranks. In the end, it will actually be cheaper than guessin'

I found a AE used from someone so should have it in a few days...we shall see if that helps any....I think the problem is there is trapped air in the heads...I cannot get it running to get it to self purge so got to figure out where the fuel drain on the driver side head is so i can purge one side. was told if i purged one side it would start and then would self purge...looking around for diagrams showing where the plug is on the driver side head.

when you get AE, pay close attention to ICP pressure. and IPR duty cycle.
silly question, but you checked oil level on the dip stick, right?

I saw glow plugs, but what about the UVCHs? How'd they look when you were under there?

Is it coming with the Ford Enhanced Package? The "basic" AE, with it's ability to pull only the Generic codes, isn't going to have what you need...

Even if you have to purchase the package now, you'll not be disappointed with what the AE will do for you now, and in the future

As for the air there is a small plug, at the drivers- rear & pass-front, of the heads for the internal fuelrail. Look at these instructions for installing a fuel crossover, it shows it pretty clearly.
