Default 93 f150 4x4 runs and drives. Won't start plz help

Hi I have a 93 f150 4x4 5.0l extended cab automatic

It won't start on it's own. But will start on ether. Runs fine after it's sprayed can drive it around boo problem... Shut it off and it will just crank and crank doesn't even try to fire. Little bit of ether and she fires right up. Previous owner was driving it daily. Came home from work. Went to leave and it wouldn't start. He just let it sit because they have other vehicles.. sat unstarted for about 6 months
Till I came along. He gave to me now im trying to get her going. Drove it home from his house no issues.. has power for days didn't skip sputter or anything.. has a little knock to it but hey it's old.

Has optimal pressure at rail. Has spark has everything..

New cap,rotor,wires,plugs,. Fuel tank. Fuel lines. Fuel filter, fuel pump, TPS.
​​​​
Thought it was the computer. Bought new one. Nothing changed.

Check engine light wasnot on it wasn't throwing any codes at all(the old one)

Am very stumped as to why it won't start on it's own and only with ether.but runs great after. Any ideas

You could try misting a little water directly into the intake (I spray right into the TB) while someone holds the throttle at enough rpm to keep it running. Just dont over do it on the water. A few mists is sufficient. Quit spraying as the engine starts choking out. Same concept seafoam uses but alot cheaper. Its gonna smoke, probably alot as it burns all the carbon and whatnot out of it. I would start with that if it were me and see if it helps, just be cautious.
