ed help cold start after upgrades but wont turn over!!

I have a 2006 f350 6.0 just did the the blue spring upgrade but my spring blue which did absolutely nothing to my truck but make it run like crap so I took it off and I did the EGR delete and all new top end gaskets, new up pipe and y pipe and cleaned all electrical. Havent started it started it in 5 days but when I tried starting it the screws that came with my EGR delete where to long for the turbo and I didnt realize the oil line wasnt sealed, so oil poured out the top. So I cleaned it up as best as i could. And it wants to start but my batteries keep dieing even though my lower alternator is brand new and the top alternator is about 4 months old and my batteries are less than a year and it has air in the lines I'm figuring cause the top filter is bubbly as hell. I even had 2 trucks one for each battery and it finally turned over but would hold charge cause it died. And it sound rough as hell. But now my batteries are completely dead I'm guessing cause all does is click. Idk what to do from here except test my batteries and alternators again? Can someone help me out please????

Welcome to the forum!
kinda hard to follow, but do you have good fuel pressure after working with the fuel pressure regulator now? and there's bubbles coming up in the fuel bowl when the key is on? fwiw I've done the blue spring on a truck before where it took a LONG time to purge the air, and then I did it on another and it fired up quick. weird.

and with the batteries, yeah I would definitely charge them back up fully and do a load test on them. sure hope that the alts and batteries are still good :eek:

do you have a monitor that you can see engine data with? It would be nice to know for sure what the cranking rpms are, since there is a minimum rpm that the computer requires before it will fire injectors to start. there's probably a bunch of other parms that the guys would like to see, like ICP and IPR, FICM voltages and sync values, etc...

Ya the bubbles come up in the fuel bowl the batter level was barley 9. My injection pressure cranking was over 1k and I couldn't get my app to read all the sensors fast enough when the truck died again. I know I the screen on the IPR was broken so I got a new one. But all this happened with my batteries havent tried turning it on. The one thing I did notice is that the the oil filter return tube in the middle is missing the little plastic piece where the smaller spring goes, idk if that would have anything to do with it. And also it's hard as hell to get the the ficm connections to lock in place.

i was thinking about the ficm connectors as well. and I've heard a lot of people who've had issues with the harness itself too. matter of fact there was arecall on it for earlier models i believe
Not sure on the plastic piece missing from the oil filter housing, seems like if you're getting over 1000psi on the ICP reading then the HPO system is alright
