Trouble starting

I replaced my diesel return lines and caps on the injectors today and now I canít get my truck to start. I primed it and have had to charge my battery a few times already. Any ideas?

Did you bleed out the injector lines individually?

Fill the filter full of fuel before you start to crank and prime. That will save some battery

I did all that. Now I have a fuel leak thatís leaking down the back of the engine when I try to start it. Itís not coming from the injectors that I can see. Iím going to try and find that my next day off. Any suggestions?

There is a crossover for the return lines back there.

I replaced that line as well. I dried up the top of the motor really well and finally got it started after 2 more battery charges I was finally able to get it started. It doesnít look like itís leaking but was probably just running down from all the lost fuel from doing the job. It started and ran better than it has in a while.
