F350 WILL NOT START

1992 Ford F-350

Engine problem
1992 Ford F350 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50,000 miles

My truck was running fine, just sometime slow to start sometimes. I left for a 3 day weekend, try to start it monday morning and all it did was crank over and I could not get a single pop out of it. I lifted up the hood in the dark and I could see that the spark plug wires were arcing out. Replaced plugs and wires and I still could not get a single pop. Now here is what I have done after that, checked for fuel on the rail and the plugs, the plugs were dripping with gas. Checked for spark and I got it, checked for timing and its fine. Checked the fuel injectors with the plug in lights and they were flashing off and on. Checked engine codes # 21, 24, & 26 came up in the key on engine off mode. The one thing that seems to me is the the amount of fuel. When I pulled the plug the gas was actually dripping off the plug. This is driving me crazy Please Help

Ok. It seems you have spark, and definitely have fuel. This is just me thinking out loud. When you crank it over have some one check to see if you have exhaust comming out of your exhaut system. It may be plugged somewhere. One of my ex-girlfriends dad had a 1985 crown vic do the same thing. So, he immeadiatley assumed the worst and replaced a butt load of stuff. EGR valve, plugs, cap, wires, distributor. The list goes on. He eventually switched it over from C.F.I to carbuerator. He was flipping out because he had done all this work and nothing changed. Then one day he was trying to start it one day and I noticed that nothing was comming out of the tail pipe. We took off the muffler and hit the key. The damn thing fired right up. : Roll:
