1997 f250hd xlt not starting after fuel bowl rebuild

Hey all,
I recently resealed the fuel bowl on my 97 7.3. I bought the o ring kit from dieselorings.com and followed their rebuild instructions. It went smoothly and the bowl is back in and I believe everything is hooked up correctly. The truck cranks smoothly and has a fully charged battery but won't catch and start. I filled the bowl with diesel to assist with priming and the level hasnt dropped at all.
Any help is much appreciated.

Tripple check all the electrical connections especially the ipr.

Are you getting the wait to start light? If not check fuse #22 under the hood.

The wait to start light is on. The truck was running great, except for the leaky fuel bowl, before I did the rebuild. I tried squirting some starter fluid in to the air filter and it almost started. I had the bowl out for almost a week. Could it be that a lot of air got in the fuel system?

Then I would check all the electrical connections again and like was mentioned above the IPR.

Re: 1997 f250hd xlt not starting after fuel bowl rebuild

have you checked your wiring like these guys mentioned?
Don't use starting fluid on a diesel
If I am not mistaken the IPR two pin plug is similar to another two pin plug in the area so make sure you did not reverse the wiring pigtails.
Without the IPR plugged in it will not start
The IPR wiring is shared with the fuel bowl wiring, the water in fuel, the fuel bowl heater and the filter sensor are all tied into the same harness with the IPR wires, these all go through a single plug over by the glow plug relay....check your wiring
