PLEASE HELP. I'M LOST AND SCARED I HAVE A NO START

PLEASE HELP. I'M LOST AND SCARED I HAVE A NO START
I have a 2000 F350 7.3. I had a injector problem a code on number 6 so me and my mechanic buddy took apart the valve covers on both sides took out injectors cleaned them put new Orings on. Replaced glow plugs and valve gaskets with wiring harness. hand cranked motor 4 to 5 rotations to purge system. while we did this we noticed a big leak in the galley which we were thinking was coming from the HPOP so we tightened the plug on the bottom which we think the leak was coming from. put that all together and during that process broke the cheap ford FPR. So we bought a new one replaced it and go to start truck and it cranks and cranks but no start. we also replaced batteries brand new. also no smoke out of exhaust while cranking. please help we are lost at this point

does your hpop have oil in it? maybe try pumping some oil into it.

did you remove any oil plugs under the valve covers to drain the oil out of the heads? if so did you make sure they were re-installed?

is your fuel bowl full after cranking the engine for a while? it takes a lot of cranking to get it to start after pulling the injectors. the air needs to find it's way out through the injectors before you start getting fuel to them.

Yes the hpop has oil in it pulled top plug and can see oil.

Yes we removed plugs then put them back in to purge system before we put injectors back in
Yes fuel bowl fills up. And it fills like we have been cranking for. A long time.

Might be a dumb suggestion but a cps sensor maybe? Sometimes things just fail for freak reasons out of the blue.

I couldnt have said it better myself.
