help! no start after high ps oil pump install

replaced the high pressure oil pump because it was leaking, and replaced two fuel lines that are on the same bracket that come up from the frame rail behind the alternator and into the driver side of the fuel filter housing, replaced the fuel filter and filled the bowl as well. Now when i go to start it, it only starts when i have a gas soaked rag to the intake, and it doesnt run well or for very long. Any suggestions????!!! Pretty sure it hasnt had the CPS recall done, but it was running fine except for the oil leak before i did the work

Try this for air in the HPOP lines, I had the same problem you did and it was just air in the lines that just needs to be worked out

This is what Dhanna6powerstroke posted up for me on my help thread before

You need to crank the truck at 10-12 second intervals, (wait 20-30 seconds between cranking intervals). After trying 3-4 times, let sit without cranking for 4-5 minutes and let the starter cool off. Repeat as necessary. He said that it should fire up. Once you get it started, raise the RPM's slightly and hold it steady. Keep uss posted on progress. Hope this helps some.

thanks but i mean it starts up like its going to run fine but, the rpms drop and drop until it dies, but as soon as i pull the gas rag out of the intake it almost immediately dies.
I've tried to start it plenty of times in intervalls as well, but i'll try it a few more times i guess.

also no leaking fuel lines i've check any fuel line that was taken off multiple times.

It is running on the gas fumes. Open the drain on the fuel bowl and turn key to on and make sure you are getting fuel to the bowl. once you are sure you are getting fuel close the valve and cycle key and listen for the fuel pump to turn off do this a few times. Than do as matt said.
