Problem after injector change.
Hello all. I'm experience some problems with my 95 7.3 engine. I recently pulled the heads, replaced the lifters, rebuilt the injectors, replace the valve springs, and replaced the rocker arms. I fired up the truck today after finally getting it all put back together and it's running horrible. I'm getting codes for contributiont balance on cylinders 2,3,4,5,6,7.
I couldn't get it to start after the initial rebuild and found that the HPOP was empty. I filled it with about 1.5 quarts of new oil and it fired up in less than 1 minute of cranking. Starting still tankes 10-20 seconds of cranking before it starts up.
I'm wondering if I just need to drive it to purge any air in the high pressure oil lines, do I need to add more oil to the HPOP, or is it likely that something is wrong with the injectors.
Any and all advice is welcome. I'll check the HPOP resivoir in the morning since that's pretty simple. I also plan on pulling the valve covers tomorrow to see if there's anything going on with lifters, push rods, valves, or rocker arms.
