I replaced all o-rings and gasket between reservoir and filled reservoir with oil and won't start. I was told that it would have air pockets that needed to be worked out but truck won't start. Was also told that when cranking if the Rachel isn't moving then there is something else wrong. Please help!

Just did mine. I don't recall seeing the tach move when cranking, but then again I was watching rpm on my Insight. It took a long time. I ran the batteries way down, then charged them overnight. In the morning I started cranking again. At the last instant before quitting for a recharge, it lit. Some guys have reported 2 or 3 battery charging sessions.

Do you have an edge insight? The most interesting thing to watch is the ICP pressure. If it's not building; its not starting.

I poured a quart in the pocket below the oil cooler. On my initial cranking, ICP pumped up to about 1100 real fast. I had the injector relay out during that initial cranking. I jumped out of the truck, put the injector relay back in and started cranking. It built up to 400 then just fell off to zero. I used up my priming quart. Thats when I cranked it dead & recharged.
