No Start

Last night I put an new rear abs sensor in because the old one took a dump. I am pretty positive , as it locked out Overdrive which totally sucked.Anyways had 1/8 tank and left to go fill it , and It sputtered , and died. Tried cranking , and let it cool because it appeared out of fuel ( Once in Died I added 10 gallons.) It attempted to start like it had air , and then killed the batterys. Went to my house got a battery charger , space heater, and extension cord for the block heater. The thing is temperamental in anything under 35* (Yeah need to look into that) We let it charger via the generator I sat inside keeping warm , and had the block heater going.

Anyways 3 Hrs later I could still kill the battery , and we tried ether. Which I was trying to avoid at all cost. I can hear the lift pump so it should have fuel , and there is fuel in the filter housing. So what do I do? last night it turned over real fast at the end but seemed to just run off the remnants of the ether. Also I seem to get very low rpm signal so we are going to replace the cam sensor with one that works but is intermittent.

Any ideas I need help asap it is my DD , and my tow rig , and we are taking trucks wheeling tomorrow.

It is an Early 99 F250 7.3 Has Intake , and Exhaust.

If you can help , and want to IM me or call me that would rock for some help.

(815) 791 5435. Going to the shop , and don't have internet there. AIM goes to me as text thanks guys ...
