put the batteries on a charger. its gonna take a little bit to crank over. did you blow the oil out of the injector retainer hole with the threads?

and the front of the heads, the banjo bolts, did you take them out to bleed the fuel or just let it fill the cylinder with fuel? sometimes that makes it a pain in the butt to start.

but just keep cranking, may take 10-15 mins. go like 3-5 mins and stop, dont burn up the starter and keep the batteries on a charger or hooked to another truck because they will drain pretty quick

Hey thanks every thing went great, cranked about 15 seconds then it jumped to life like an angry beast lol. I let it idle 10 min and the idle was a little rough, shut her down. An hour later fired her up again ,it didn't crank as long but had that beasty thing still going on .Well I drove it to work and when I started it up to come home it was it's good ole self again and it runs like a champ . Thanks again
