Air in the system.

Grab a 5/8 wrench and crack all the injector lines loose, then crank it for 15 seconds while holding the accelerator to the floor. Let starter cool for 1 minute and repeat until fuel is squirting out of all the fuel lines. Reconnect all lines and fire her up.


Good Luck

well, if the top of the injector pump was removed and not put back on properly, it is time for a rebuilt pump, because the one on there is now toast.

Try putting more fuel in the tank, if it's too low it has to work over time to draw fuel up if it's empty. After that if you are getting fuel at the lines & it's still not starting it's time to look at the pump like TJ said.
