No start please help!

Hey guys. So I just raplaced passenger side to rocker arms and push rods. Put it all back together and it didn't start. Pulled valve cover off again to make sure the rockers were actually opening valves and they were. I tried to bleed air out of fuel system and it didn't seem to work. But 2 of the 4 fuel lines leak while cranking. I mean it's obviously a problem, but i can't see why it wouldn't even fire just because of a fuel leak? So is it due to the leak causing too low of pressure? Or any idea what It can be?

all lines to the injectors must be replaced (as per ford) and personaly i would not run the risk of my engine overfilling with fuel and running away and melting pistons. Once you have fixed the leak, make sure to plug in all injectors and the high pressure rail sensor, high pressure pump wiring, and pcm. Once you can crank the engine, at the fuel cooler, release the 17mm banjo fitting (one closest to the driver or back of engine) until a slight amount of fuel can come out, not too much. have someone crank the engine while you with a 17mm wrench can loosen up a bit or tighten up a bit the banjo fitting to bleed the air out. After the engine is running make sure to inspect for fuel leaks at the injectors and if no leaks are found. reasembled and do an oil change before even thinking of driving that thing. and make sure to check your oil level daily for the next few days at the same time, condition and location of vehicle to make sure oil growth is not happening.

Just like you said it. Needed to replace the fuel lines, they were leaking and not letting it have enough pressure to start.
