Default 01 Ranger stalled while drive, wont start

I have a 01 Ranger 3.0 FF, that stalled while on way home from work. Truck has 97k on it, but engine was replaced in 04,and only havs 50k on it. I have checked all the norms, fuel pressure, spark, compression, all good and with in specs, just for giggles, i replaced the the ign coil, and crank sensor. injectors are fine. was running perfect, then bogged and stalled, Oil was changed last week, all gauges normal, no codes or lights.
verifed timing is good. pulled valve cover and plug on #1 cyl, and verifed tdc and that the valves were closed. every thing seems normal. but just wont start... suggestions???????????????????????????????????

im on a very short deadline. being i have to drive 2 hours back to atlanta for work sunday night.. or make other arrangements.

I can't even get the starter to turn over so i am digging into that to start. I just get a really loud click and no spin.

you need to determine if it is the battery or cables first. do the headlights work. if they do suspect starter relay, starter control circuit, starter solenoid, starter. if you have a multimeter start testing for power.....

well, i figured out my problem, it ended up being stripped timing gears, only 3 teeth left on the crank sprocket. it was enough to catch and crank the engine to give the right compression.

thanks for all your help..

Well mine turns out to be a bit more serious. Had it towed down to the local mechanic and they tried to pull the crank over.

Turns out that the engine had seized. Still not sure what caused it thou. Truck only has 129k. Anythoughts?
