Truck wont start after injector replacement

Hey guys I am in desperate need of some help. I am so dissapointed. I replaced all 8 injectors rebuilt by warren diesel 155/stock and replaced the FICM from BPD 4 phase. I really took things so slow with installing and believe I followed all the directions and steps. I'm just bummed the truck wont start it turns over and I can smell diesel out the pipe. I checked the FICM voltage and its good at 48.7 with a volt meter. I'm just beside myself I dont know what to do. I hear clicking louder than normal on the passenger side of the truck but I had the hood open and am not sure if it was that loud normally before the injector rebuild and I might be paranoid and grasping at straws. I really dont want to take it to a mechanic and give up but just dont know where to go from here. Im an aircraft mech in the Navy and really like working and doing on my own stuff I also replaced with the upgraded 1 piece stand plugs and the dummy plug. So that is everythig I have replaced on it with this job. Thanks for any help ahead of time, just feeling defeated

If you didn't fight a little to get them back on and click, they are probably not making good contact. Also, give a light tug on your injector plugs to see if they are connected as well.

Now that is a bit of an exaggeration! Yes, the plugs can be awkward to click in unless you get your hands positioned correctly. But as I said, no click, no work! Check for damaged pins this time, just in case!

The degas doesn't have to be completely disconnected, just the bolts and the 2 small hoses. Just pull it to the side on its edge and you should have no drips. If you have some plugs, that could help if it moves. If the hoses go low, they will leak fluid.
