do you have any fuel at the injector lines when you tried to bleed them?

How would you know if there was fuel in the injectors. I thought they were on the other side of the bleed valve?

I thought you were bleeding the lines at the injectors. I would crack a few lines loose and crank it over and see if you got fuel there.

just check if it smoking out the exhuast. smoke = fuel. Also try plugging the truck in for a couple hours and then trying to start it.
