99 7.3 cranks but does not start

My worker called me and told me my 99 f-350 was turning off but starting back up.Then he called back and sad that it turned off and does not start.He cranked it and shoot a little starting fluid but it did not start.Me and a buddy went to look at it.It has fuel in filter and oil in oil pump next to fuel filter.We scaned it and found a code about kam sensor.We replaced it with new sensor but it still does not start.We even removed valve cover on driver side maybe to see if injector or glow plug wire was burn but no wires were burn.Somebody help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the tach moving?? If not then the Cam sensor was no good, I have had them bad straight out of the box so it is always possible

99 7.3 cranks but does not start

When i tried to start the truck the tach moved to 500 rpms but did not start.Then the seconed time the tach did not move.We also put a kam sensor from my 00 f-250 that is running fine and it still does not start.
