'96 7.3L won't start white smoke
Hey guys new to posting iv always read your forms and get my issues resolved. This time is different. So I bought a 96 f250 powerstroke the other day none running. Not much of a back story on it. It won't start has white smoke when trying. So it has new starter, new glow plug relay, new injectors (so the previous owner say old ones came with it to), new cam positioning sensor, rebuilt turbo, switched idm from my other powerstroke, checked continuity from glow plugs they all seem to be fine, checked glow plug relay good, checked valve cover gasket wiring harness good, hpop oil level is good, unpluged injector pressure sensor on driver side head still no start, fuel bowl is filling up when cranking and clean, fuse #22 is good same with the rest of the fuses, oil was just changed and is good on level, wait to start light comes on like normal, rpms go up when starting, oil gauge shows good pressure. Now I know ether is bad and I don't normally use it but I was out of ideas and wondered if motor was bad so I gave her a shot. She started up and sounded fine till ether was burnt up. I have a 97 powerstroke that runs and drives so I can plug and play with parts. I bought this truck either to replace mine or parts for mine all depending on if I can get it running. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I have bin reading threw forums for three days with no results in my truck I have probably 2 hours of crank time on the truck. So I believe the oil rails should be air free.
