This is going to sound like a stupid question. Were you actually able to get the truck to fire up and run, after the repair? If so, how long did you actually let it run for? Typically, after any repair that requires opening up of the high pressure oil system in any way (ie injector(s), high pressure oil rail(s), standpipe(s), and /or the pump itself), much longer initial engine crank time is to be expected. And in answer to your question, NO the high pressure oil system does NOT require bleeding in the sense that you are thinking of. What I usually do after any extensive repair, is I start the engine and run it at FULL THROTTLE (foot to the floor), until operating temperature is reached. At this point, is where I would road test the vehicle for a few miles in order to keep the system primed. And no, revving the engine at 3800 RPMs is NOT bad for the engine, in case any of you are wondering. Remember, these engines are GOVERNED, which means you can't blow it up.
What you need to do, is monitor ICP volts, ICP psi and IPR % on your scan tool. You need to monitor those three pieces of info, at key-on/engine-off, while cranking the engine, and at key-on/engine-running (when at operating temperature, if you manage to get the engine started).
Ignore your P0336 and P0683 DTCs. Those were probably set when you disconnected the glow plug control module.
