Are you so sure its on the compression stroke instead of being in the exhaust stroke-180 deg off-

I agree but I can hook a compression gauge and fuel pressure gauge a noid light and a spark tester all at the same time and everything is there even tried and egr valve thinking maybe its stuck open letting to much (used) air into combustion chamber to run.

EGR valve could be wide open creating a massive vacuum leak

Are the sparks strong?
Weak saprks can result in non starting.

Spark looks a little weak maybe but it has no reason to be weak and it still should run. Plugs wires coils are new

A failing coil would result in weak sparks and continued starting would flood the cylinders causing the spark plugs to be wet and cause non-starting.

Stumbling during initial throttle opening could be due to

1. Sparks misfiring.
2. Fuel injectors operations.
3. Fuel pressure.
4. Valve clearances too tight.
5. TPS out of adjustment

Since vehicle had not been started for quite some time, let it have some running time to see if the problem evens out.

Starting only with WOT can mean a fault with the TPS or its adjustment.

Check to see if there are ant trouble codes.

Fixed no it was a crack in the head would only leak while truck was off once fired it would burn the small amount of antifreeze then seal up and run fine until you let it sit again
