1985 Ford F250: gas wont start..starter

Resolved Question:


I just bought a 1985 Ford F250 with the 460 gas engine. I drove it for a few days, now it won't start. It sounds like the starter is working, but the engine won't turn over. Could it be the fuel pump ?

It can be the fuel pump, but try this first; Shoot some starting fluid or carb cleaner in the throttle body / carb to see if it tries to start. If it does try that way, then check your fuel pressure and volume of fuel with a GUAGE.
