Ive had the same problem. turn the key and listen for the fuel pump. if you can hear it. good. next take the ignition control moduel off the truck. it's located above the coil pack on the passenger side and is not much bigger than your thumb. they cost about $85 or so at autozone. you may even be able to get yours tested. when i tryed to get mine tested we had to go by the paint mark because they were missing the harness. look for a paint mark on the back from the factory. it is either yellow or white. when they burn up the paint color changes from one to the other. the replacements don't have that.

CHECK THE DISTRIBUTER CAP AND COIL FIRST.IF THEY'RE O.K THEN MAKE SURE THE FUEL PUMP RUNS.NEW CAP AND ROTOR ARE THE USUAL FIX,BUT WHEN THE FUEL PUMP QUITS,THERE IS NO FIX BUT CHANGE THE PUMP.

After installing a new oil pump does it have to be set to the crank on a 2006 chevy Silverado 4x4V8 6.0 vortex


No but the timing on the engine has to be reset or else the engine will be out of time and back fire and not start. The distributor sits in the oil pump shaft. In order to set the timing you will need to bring #1 piston to the top of the cylinder and point the rotor to #1 in the firing order of the dist. cap and lock down the dist once it is done.

because you have done work on the distributor, that is the area I would be checking. Check for damaged rotor button, cracked cap, ignition module and even the drive shaft of the distributor. There may be something you missed when working on the distributor.

Have you checked the carburateur? Sometimes the jets need some cleaning. What about the ignition timing? Have you checked it? There is also some calibrations on the ignition advancing system, be careful.
