97 7.3 NO START help :(

I drove the truck about a 20 miles yesterday towing , got back to the shop shut it off and now it wont start. The reservoir at the front of the engine is full, the engine oil is full,the battery's are good, the tach goes up to about 250 when cranking, i have oil pressure while cranking but still no start. Its acting like its not getting fuel but it has fuel at the schrader valve. What could be the issue?

I use the truck everyday for work and im dead in the water without it. its a 97 f250 4x4 non extended cab with a built auto. It is completely bone stock.

This sounds like what going on with my rig right now and my IDM is fried. I can pull codes and datastream off the PCM but cant run a buzz test and the injectors are not fireing but I have high pressure fuel at the schrader valve and 2000 PSI of high pressure oil. Do you have access to a friend that has a computer with data stream capabilities?Let me know and Ill work with you and try to get this thing up and running fast.

alright. Then shoot me the numbers you have for the IPR Duty cycle while cranking, ICP pressure, Fuel pulse width, PCM voltage while cranking and RPM while cranking. These will give me a base line to the health of your system. Did you get any codes when you hooked your tool up. Can you run and KOEO test to include injector buzz tests or self diagnostics.
