Check and see if there is pulse on the injectors. It sounds like it could be your anti-theft system. Another possibility is your timing chain jumped when you cranked it.

Just replaced a timming chain on my 1998 F-150 4.2L. It was getting fuel to the plugs and was firing. Big key to timing was it backfired while I was trying to crank it?
