Time has come to join the party...need some advice

Well I finally took the jump and have bought a project...I found a 1999 F350 non dually with 192K on the clock. It has some issues but I think i can manage them.

Here is the story from the guy I bought it from. He was Elk hunting and when headed back to camp he ran into a cow(moo moo) and damaged the front.damaged the hood, pass fender, bumper, and headlight. Said they stopped and checked out the cow and called the police to report it. had the wrecker come out and he drove it on the wrecker to have it towed home. Tow driver delivered it. When he got back he didnt get a check to get to the truck for a couple of weeks due to weather. Well he went to start it and it will not start and he doesn't know why. So I would like any ideas on how to fix my new truck when it gets here. He sold it because he has an 02 f350 so just took the insurance money and selling the truck as is. Yes i know it has a salvage title and it doesnt bother me. I looked it over and I can fix all the cosmetic stuff but starting to figure out a game plan for getting it started.

So what you all think...here is a pic of it with the damage...

Is it turning over? When it turns over is smoke coming out of the exhaust? Check the oil level, if it's too low, it will not start as oil is not getting to the hpop to run the injectors. Make sure fuel is getting to the fuel bowl.

it cranks but doesn't fire. I checked the oil and it was a little dirty but not low. Drained the separator bowl and cranked and it refilled like it should.

When cranking do you get smoke out of the exhaust? If you are, fuel is getting in the cylinders, if not, no fuel is getting into the cylinders.

Check the fuel pump cut off. It's on the passenger side kick panel.

Check gpr, both batteries, hpop level, fuel shut off, cps. Fuel bowl is filling that's good I would start with batteries and gpr.

Fuel leak is most likely just bad dump valve o rings that's an easy fix takes 20 minutes or so.
