Cranks over, no smoke? Check the fuel shutoff solenoid on the injection pump. I has to open the fuel before it will go to the injection pump and injectors. It can lose power to it(electrical problem) or just burn out. Locate it and listen to it, it should make some kind of noise each time the key is turned on or off. If not, check it for voltage with the key on. If it has voltage and won't work, it will have to be replaced.Let me know. Thanks.
