1997 7.3L Powerstroke No Start

Hello! I have a 1997 7.3L Powerstroke F350 Crew Cab 4x4.
It cranks over but does not start. Drove it two weeks ago no problem. Changed oil, turns over fine, Tachometer moves during cranking, no WTS light.
Replaced Glow Plug Relay.
Verified Fuel Filter Housing full.
Good batteries.

Any ideas out there would be appreciated.

Hmmm, since no-one else has answered I'm going to stab at it.
There should be a shutoff solenoid on the fuel pump. The connector could be loose/broken/fuse/etc. It should get 12 volts when on/cranking.

Thank you for your response Jasong. I verified the fuses are good and will check the shutoff solenoid.

Ok update as follows.
It appears the problem is the PCM. Now the trick is finding the right one. I have not been able to find a new, reman., or used, that match the my existing numbers.
Can anyone tell me if I can use another PCM that is for that year range truck with matching options? Numbers on my PCM are- (DPC-312), (F7TF-12A650-RC), and calibration code on door (7-90-P). The truck is a 97 F350, 7.3L diesel, 4x4, crew cab, automatic.
