Thumbs down NO start after oil cooler rebuild

2004 6.0 Truck was running fine except for high oil temps. After replacing the oil cooler truck just cranks and cranks, I searched the forums and read priming the oil filter housing would help. I've dumped at least a gallon in the oil filter housing waiting for it to stop draining and fill up so I would know it was primed. I'm stumped and pissed off, thinking about just burning it to the ground. any suggestions? NO codes showing up except the usual egr deleted items. I feel like I've cranked sufficient amount of time to purge the air out, checked all connections, also everything had a place and no bolts left over, someone help before I go postal on my once loved and cherished 6.0

Is fuel getting to the fuel bowl? All the plugs plugged in? Any blown fuses? Double check these things first.

I had just bought my 05 and after bullet proofing it for the life of me i couldnt get it started. turned out the truck had an aftermarket alarm that wouldnt let it start. I didnt even realize it had the alarm, but once i found it and took care of it, it fired right up. probably a long shot but I sure didnt expect the issue I ran into.

Yes fuel is going to the bowl, and Ive had the truck since 09, the only alarm thats on it is the one I put in there myself. Should I be checking the fuses in the cab or underneath the hood? All the fuses in the cab checked out good. Does anyone know how to check the relays? Saw a pcm relay, maybe that could be the culprit, btw ficm is a 57.5 volts.

How long have you cranked on it? Gotta get the air out, to get the injectors to start firing. Is it smoking?

Cranked long enough to drain the batterys twice, then hooked my buddys duramax and cranked some more. No smoke out of the tailpipe, none, zero. Should there be? and whats the most amount of oil the cooler resevoir should hold? Seriously dumped at least a gallon down there, where does it all go? Im guessing Im way over max capacity for the engine oil now...

It is absolutely necessary to have good batteries, you need a good charger on there while you are cranking. Plus you have a little air in the fuel system. 30 second cranking max, then let the starter cool for 1.5 minutes or so. You need to check the oil and drain some if necessary. What oil filters are you using?

motorcraft oil and fuel filters, so you say 30 seconds crank time 1.5 wait time? For how long would you say? I feel like I cranked for a long time already and still nothing..

Just depends man, let it charge overnight. It should start smokin eventually. Don't get aggravated, guys have burnt up starters being impatient. Not the first time i've seen a post like this. Recheck all connections in daylight.
