welcome to PSN.
my first thought would be to inspect wiring, sounds like something was hooked up wrong when it was put back together.

owner of almost to many fords.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Re: 1996 Ford f350 7.3 powerstroke

the high pressure oil pump or low pressure was replaced?
Mechanical fuel pump?
Did it run after this work was performed? Or is this the first attempt to start after having the work done?
