newbie needing help please!!

I am new to this webpage and I need some help or advise. I have a 1995 F250 4x4 with the 7.3L powerstroke in it. On the weekend of July 4th I was returning from the lake pulling my 24 foot pontoon when the truck just stalled out like it ran out of fuel. I would only crank and not restart. I have since replaced the fuel pump in the valley and fuel bowl (I broke the other one during removal) and the HPOP as well as both batteries. I have also put a used CPS, IPR, and ICP. This truck has never started since it died on that day almost a year ago. Today my father in law lightly sprayed some ether over the air filter and it started up only until he quit spraying into it?? I'm stumped and would be much appreciative to anyone who can help me. Thanks James.

Sounds like you need a snap on scan tool, with no codes you are shooting in the dark. if you did run all the oil and fuel out of the system with your previous repairs i know you can sometimes crank it all afternoon before it will start.(so i have herd) before you get all the air out of the system. good luck man!

first check to make sure your hpop is full it will be a little plug on top of the resivoir...
second fill up your fuel lines and on the back of your heads there are two plugs that you can remove with a 1/4 in ratchet loosen them and crank untill you got pure fuel flowing out of them...
then close them and keep cranking untill you get it started...

So today I replaced the Cam Position Sensor because I only had a used one before. So I put a new one in it and started cranking on it again. I then plugged my OBDII scanner into it and got two codes a P0603 and P1211 both of which don't really help to explain why this truck still will not fire???

p0603 doesnt mean you have a problem, if you are runing any kind of chip, programmer ,etc. you will get that code

I have unhooked my chip during trying to fix whatever is wrong with this thing. But usually I do have a chip installed in it.
