What happened, any thoughts?

1995 F 350, 7.3. I had 8 new glow plugs, 8 new injectors, injector harneses both inside valve cover and outside and fuel bowl and pump replaced and ford filter put in. Used to start right up after just a couple cranks even after sitting for days. Now I have to crank and crank to start it. It's the same thing even after driving it to the store. I came out of the store today and still had to crank it a lot. Any thoughts as to why this has happened after all the new parts have been installed?

Sounds like a possible ICP or IPR issue.

How many miles have you driven it since you installed the injectors?? May need alil longer driving time to fully clean out the excess oil from removing the injectors.

Not sure if you removed all the oil outta every injector location but that will cause some longer cranking starts til cleaned out.

I've only put maybe 10 miles on it since having the injectors replaced. I don't think there's a problem with the ICP or IPR. It starts but takes a long time to and when it is running it is smooth. It does start after it is warmed up to operating temp but it, also takes a little while to start and after it starts it runs smooth. Lots of power and no smoke. How many miles should I put on it before it will clean out the oil? I also had them replace all the sleeves at the same time the injectors were being replaced.

It will take a decent amount of time to get all the air out

Here's an update of the trouble I was having. It seems to be starting a lot faster now. Before having the injectors replaced it would take maybe 3 or 4 seconds to start then when I got it back from the shop it was taking roughly 10 to 12 seconds to start. Now It's starting around 6 seconds. I really love the way it idles now. No lopping just a steady strong rumble with no change in pitch at all. It is so awesome. FORD all the way!
