New truck wont start

Hi I just bought a 2001 F350 it has 310k miles on it. When i bought it the guy said that it ran but missed a little. So he had a mechanic pull the glow plugs to have a compression test done and the mechanic broke the glow plugs. But now its not getting fuel when you crank it over. What should i look for? I've checked the fuses and they all seem to be good so is there something else i need to check. Maybe something didnt get plugged in. idk

there's a million and one things to check......

is the SES/CEL on? if so, are you able to pull codes at all?

Are the harnesses at the valve cover gaskets all connected, good, and not burned or melted? check the exterior as well as under the valve cover harneses...

Did the truck run after the mechanic broke the glow plugs and later it wouldn't start? or has it not started since the mechanic worked on it? (I've seen some not very good mechanics hook up the injector harneses wrong, without clips, backwards, etc.)

Pull your fuel bowl cover and verify it has fuel in it, if you are able test your fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the fuel bowl

are you getting any smoke during cranking? if so what color, blue, grey, white, etc? does it smell like raw fuel?

Does the wait to start light come on?

how did you verify the injectors are not getting fuel?

wiring harness at the valve cover is connected and good. It has not ran since it went to the mechanics. I did'nt see any smoke coming out. But i was not looking for any. wait to start light comes on. I'm not positive that its not getting fuel but I'm pretty sure.

Open the drain valve on the back of the fuel filter bowl, yellow lever, turn key on, the drain line stops about 1/2 way down the front of the engine slighty to the pass side, you may want to add a hose to it and run it into a pop bottle because the fuel should come out in a good strong stream. If no fuel, check fuses with multi meter, if all are good I would be looking at a bad fuel pump. Did you break apart the the UVC connection at the vc and look for burnt or loose pins?

Yep fuel is coming out so it must be something not plugged in or somethings burnt. I'm hoping to have it running soon because i really need it for firewood.
