Did you have the truck running after you put the injectors in? If youre tryin to start the truck after the install make sure the HPOP reseviour is full and the batterys are fully charged then just keep cranking.

I would say bleed the system and then once you get it started hold it at about 1800rpm for a few min. then go put it under a load (race around for a few min.). This is what I do when our trucks run out of fuel.

Yup, what they said, and it takes about 50 miles to get it running right once it is going, good luck man.

A loose hose somewhere can allow air in, or a loose connector.

If the previous recommendations have not worked and its still air locking there is a good chance you have an injector that is leaking internaly. This will allow combustion pressure into the fuel system and air lock it. One trick is to get it running and open the fuel bowl drain valve(gonna make a mess) if the engine smooths out or runs a little better you have an injector leaking.
