97 7.3 turns over but will not start. help please!!

Hey, new to diesels here, im a great gasser mechanic but im having troubles with my diesel. Back in January i was hauling a repo on a trailer and i pulled over the get diesel and jumped back in and it would not turn over. i checked the starter but the problem was that the starter was hanging down by the main wires for it. I unhooked the stater and taped up the wires and got a pull start from a semi, i drove to the nearest Napa and bought a new starter...$250 later i was back on the road. i made it home from the 12 hour trip and the next day i went out there to start my truck and it didn't start as quick as usual. on my way to work it was cutting out and hesitating when i got on the pedal. on my way home it shut down and would not start back up till it got cold. The next day i changed the IPR o rings cause I was told to try that, it did not help. the hpop reservoir had oil in it, i changed the CPS, ICP, IDM, PCM. tested all the valve cover gasket and the tested good. got a snap on scanner from a friend and it had no codes and passed a buzz test. Then one day it finally decide to run again, it ran for about two weeks but it was running rough. Then the hpop bearings decided to explode and was shooting oil out the back of the pump. So I bought a new hpop for a superduty and a new IPR, new glow plugs, new stancor gpr, fuel pump and i also order new exhaust and down pipe and turbine housing since i got a bundle discount. i tried starting it and it would not even attempt to start. today i bought two new batteries and traded in my starter for a new one, when i tried starting it today it started to smoke out of the exhaust and is trying to start more and more. i am getting a fuel pressure reading of 50 to 60 while cranking it over, i am completely stumped and would like to have my truck running again. any help would be appreciated. thanks

^^^ Check that, then see what codes you have, clear the codes you have and then try to start it again and see what codes come back. Then we can go from there.

Do you have WTS light? Check fuses & verify GP relay is working.
You may have to purge the air out of HPOP system. Loosen the line going into the head while turning over engine.
Verify the injector solenoids are firing.
