Injector install no start please help

I just changed out my injectors in my 2000 Excursion and now it wont start. I cranked it till the batterys died. it toasted my starter.I replaced both of the under valve cover harnesses and made sure everything was plugged in. I pulled the sensor out of the top of my hpop res and it was full of oil. i dont know what else to check. Please help this is my last day off from work and my truck is the only vehicle i have.

Is your fuel bowl primed? Fuel pump OK? Your next best bet would be to scan for codes & see what your rig tells ya.

The fuel bowl has fuel in it I checked by opening the drain valve. I noticed that after I start cranking it for a while I start to hear a ticking noise towards the front of the motor up top. Is this normal

Also the truck ran fine before I pulled the injectors so it must be something i did. Maybe I just have to crank it longer. I heard that it takes a while to get oil to the injectors.

Ticking noise? I'm not sure about that. I don't hear it in mine(but I'm still running stockers). Let's see if a tech can help. Do you have access to a scan tool?

This is a possibility, also. But considering it's a high pressure system, the rails would've already been primed. Lemme see if I can find a tech.

Did you take the oil galley plugs out? Forget to put them in?

Have you cranked for 10 seconds 1-2 minutes apart about 3 to 5 times? With a battery charger on the batteries and a multi meter on them making sure you're cranking at 12 volts.

Any codes?

I did pull the plugs out of the rails and let them drain before i pulled the injectors. I made sure to put them back in place when I was done. Is it possible that there is an air pocket in the rail maybe
