Default 1999 7.3 V8 diesel no start.

Ok, I bought what I thought was a good running diesel f-450 last thursday.

It has sat for a year. It started no problem, drove it from lapeer to my office in auburn hills, and turned it off.

Tried to start it this morning, and no crank.

Anyways, swapped out the batterys to optima red tops, and I have a good crank. The engine is just sputtering and won't fire. I do get the grid heater wait, then the light goes off.

I just sent a guy up to get some new fuel filters. Anything else I should look at, espeically if these filters don't help?

During crank, it will give off some black exhaust, and sputter alittle, but no start.
