Engine Cranks but will Not Start - Diesel on Ford F-350 Super Duty

If the engine cranks but will not start, this may be caused by damaged wiring to the high pressure fuel pump. Wiring to the pump can be chafed, which causes the pump to stop working. The chafed wires will need to be accessed and repaired.

My Ford F350 diesel won't start after coming home one evening from work . Tried to leave after sitting about three hours and noticed a strong wiring burn smell. The truck is in the shop, and hoping to resolve the issue so I can dump this piece of crap.
