    Well, all I can think of is a timing problem. Having spark isn't as important as having spark at the right time. Have you been fiddling with the distributor at all?

    Maybe someone who knows how to troubleshoot an EFI truck will stop in and have some better feedback.

    You're gonna have to get ahold of a timing gun and check the timing.

    What kind of work were you doing on your truck when the no-start issue surfaced? Did it just start happening right out of the blue?
