Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
Have you checked the inertia switch?
The inertia fuel shutoff (IFS) switch (Figure 76) is used in conjunction with the electric fuel pump. The purpose of the IFS switch is to shut off the fuel pump if a collision occurs. It consists of a steel ball held in place by a magnet. When a sharp impact occurs, the ball breaks loose from the magnet, rolls up a conical ramp and strikes a target plate which opens the electrical contacts of the switch and shuts off the electric fuel pump. Once the switch is open, it must be manually reset before restarting the vehicle.

Do you hear the fuel pump come on for 2 seconds when the key is first turned on?
Does the engine turn over?
Do you know what the fuel pressure is?
Have you checked for spark at the plugs?
I see, thanks. Do you know if the engine will turn with a socket on the crankshaft pulley?
There were some issues with the starter terminals, (bad connection) and it is possible that the 'bump' in the left front may have jarred the terminal and it's not making a good connection at the starter. Can you check that or is the truck already being towed?
