7.3 No Start

Hello. I am new to the site. I have a 1997 F-250HD 7.3 that I got from my
Dad 4 years ago (he purchased it new). It has been well maintained. Recently as I was driving it, I noticed a bit of a power loss right around 1400rpm at part throttle (no power loss when given more throttle). A few minutes later while accelerating from a stop (at approx. 30 mph) the truck died. Coasted to the shoulder, and it would not restart. My first thought was the CPS (which was replaced by my Dad, and then again by Ford when the recall hit). A few items to note from my experience checking forums: The tach does move while cranking. I don't get the "Wait To Start" light when the ignition is turned on. Any thoughts, or ideas would be appreciated.

I was interrupted by work when I was posting this, and failed to mention that there is a Super Chips tuner installed (in "tow safe" mode). I used the controller to try to read any codes. The controller displayed that there was no response. I then tried (on the advice of a friend with a 2001 F250 7.3 that he bought with a Super Chips tuner to remove it, as he was having stalling, and starting issues) to remove the "chip". The tuner was able to recognize the VI
N, and state of tune (tow safe), but displayed that there was a connection error. I appreciate the last reply, and that was one of the paths that I was considering. I am hoping that my PCM isn't fried. My Dad installed the tuner several years ago, and with no problems. I use the truck primarily as my daily driver, and also tow a 34' fifth wheel (also from my Dad...package deal).
