Lot of possibilities here. Is there fuel in the fuel bowl? Enough oil? Open the oil cap and see if it smells like burnt electrical.

More basics:
* Is the HPOP reservoir full?
* Does the WTS light come on?
* Do you get white smoke?
* Does the tach move when you crank it?

I haven't checked it sense it happened bc its been rainin here but it didn't white smoke at all and before it died it would still gain rpms but not all cylinders where hittin the n eventually it lost so much power it would barely pull its self and died but no lights came on and no white smoke.

No WTS light --> check fuse #22 under the hood. If it's blown, do NOT just replace it right away. Disconnect the fuel bowl heater first.
