HELP! /no start/new camshaft sensor/no tach/

'99 7.3 died while warmming up the other day, had recentley died going down road a couple of days earlier. ! knew i had this one in the bag already because tach stoppted working also. I imediately reached in the glove box between my fuel filter and belt, pulled out my new CMS and 10mm.wrench, replaced it in a couple of minutes without even telling the to go back in the house. I never dreamed of getting back in and turning key to only here the starter turning over and never hitting once and tach still just bouncing to about 150 rpm's.I am new and don't have a code reader yet because at the auto parts stores here have never been able to retrive any for me any time the light has come on. I have always just came here and started reading until I could figure what was wrong.Could this be another problem or is this new sensor bad also.I called the ford place and they verified that I did have the replacement for recall,if it wasn't I couldn't have taken it back anyway because it had been installed.So if any body out there can help me please do.
