Truck wont start after putting stock injectors back in.

I took out my stage 2 injectors and gtp38r turbo and put my stock turbo on and some used 7.3 injectors. They are supposed to be working perfect and out of a 2000 model truck with 140k on them. I put everything in just like i did when I put the stage 2 injectors in but no my truck wont start. I dont know what to do at all. Please help me. I need my truck running.

I cranked the engine over for two 20 second cycles without my valve cover harnesses plugged in so it would build up oil pressure. I then plugged them in and tried to crank it. I did 3 long cranks and it never fired. I did like 20 second crank on each of them. How do I fill the HPOP with oil. Or how can I chech to make sure its full. Thanks

Im not sure on yours but with my OBS the hpop reservoir is right on the front of the block and on the right side of it is a plug that is removed with a 1/4 ratchet. fill it with a small funnel and crank again but keep checking the oil level here because it will be used up as you crank

there is an alan key on the top of the HPOP, check it to make sure its within a half inch. and you may have to crank it more. it took my truck almost 20 minutes of on and off cranking to get it to fire.

I'll check the HPOP and then try to crank it some more. You said it took 20 minutes to get your truck started. I did three long cranks about 20 seconds each and then my batteries got too low to crank it. I have it on charge right now. When I get off work at 6 ill try it again. My 3 long cranks and it didnt crank would you be scared that something else is wrong or just keep trying.

I would just keep trying. Mine took forever also and it didnt even sound like it wanted to start at any point but eventually it should fire.

IT RUNS!!!!!! haha all it needed was one more good crank and it started right up. Now i gotta figure out where I have some oil coming from. Its not from the turbo pedistal because theres no oil down down there, and i put new o rings there. Its like its coming from the passanger side of the engine somewhere and it leaked down my passanger side sway bar. Where could this oil be coming from?
