93 turns over but WILL NOT start!
So I bought my first 12v a couple weeks ago. Started on the first crank, bought it the next day and drove it home no problem. 300,000 miles, small oil leak from where the Vacuum pump joins the power steering pump. So I removed that assembly and put a seal kit on and then she wouldn’t start. We cranked it over and over and over about 20 times and it started but pissed diesel from the throttle pin. So then I bought the o ring for the throttle pin and removed the timing gear cover and gear and injection pump, replaced the ring, put it back together. Realized the vacuum pump wasn’t properly seated and tightened it and then.. it still wouldn’t start. At this point we took it all back apart, adjusted the timing, removed, resealed, and painted the exhaust manifold and turbo, got a new battery, put it all back together and now it sounds right but just won’t kick over. We tried priming the fuel system with the low pressure hand pump on the lift pump, removed and cleaned the injectors, reprimed, changed all the filters and fluids, even tried jumping it by putting transmission fluid in the fuel filter, she just won’t start. Turns over but won’t start. Also my buddy pinched this line here on the bottom of the VE pump, does anybody know what it is or what it does and if it might be the culprit? Please help!
