I finally got the starter on my dads 89 F250 (6.9L) replaced. That fixed the cranking problem. Now I have a bigger problem... It won't start.

Correct me if I am wrong here, but you turn the key on, shouldn't there be a fuel pump buzz just like on the gas trucks, until the system is pressurized?

If so, his truck ain't got it. I even took a injector loose (not all the way) and cranked the truck over - nothing, nada, zilch.

Someone help me out here. My wife needs her jeep back!!

My guess, It should have a fuel pump reset switch. I think on the trucks its under the dash. try resetting and see if that helps.
I think it's called an inertia switch.

First, if it is an 89, it should be a 7.3L. Second, it has a mechanical fuel pump. Look on the right front pan rail.

The 6.9L is a diesel,right,Keith? If it is,I am in no-man's-land. Those inertia switches are behind the right kick panel in the cab,but I'm not sure if a Diesel has it there. That would sound like a fuel delivery problem.

Yeah the suckers a diesel.

I'll double check engine size tomorrow to be sure, could swear it was 6.9. I'll look for mechanical pump also...
