Re: 1997 7.3 No Start
The above post is a very real possibility. Low compression is another possibility, if it has eaten dirt at some point in it's life.
Starting at the cheap end and working up, I would load test the batteries, and verify that all cable connections are PERFECT.
Next, maybe a starter, how old is it? Just because it's spinning doesn't mean it's turning fast enough to start cold. That's a total judgement call on your part, but personally, I've been fooled before myself.
After that, might be time to consider a compression test.
