Well that's a bummer...
1. Are you getting high pressure fuel
at your injectors, verified by cracking the lines?
2. Air - Nothing restricting intake or exhaust
? (never heard why you pulled the head)
a) Is your engine
cranking over rapidly? (Slow crank = not easy to fire)
b) Does it sound like it has compression
? (vs freely spinning?)
c) Did you verify valve clearances? (make sure you have a gap on all at some point in the rotation)
4. Did you mess with the injection pump (mounting) at all?
a) Don't continually crank unless your raw water
seacock is closed until she fires...
b) Have you tried using WD-40 like starting fluid?
