7.3l no start after rebuild
1st time here- I did a complete rebuild of my 01 7.3 PSD after melting thru a piston. Put remanufactured heads on it, and used a Ford OEM rebuild kit with .020 pistons. Now it will not start. #1 injector is leaking oil out of the top, and I assume that will not allow the HPOP to generate enough pressure to drive the injectors. I replaced the O-rings for a second time on that injector, and even replaced the head b/c it looked like the machined surface was rough and might not seal.
Still leaking, is it possible the injector itself has cracked??
Also- when I am cranking it over, the oil pressure gauge does not move, and I have to keep refilling the HPOP reservoir. Is that normal?
