tried thatcheck the easy stuff first.....the shut off solenoid pulling up when you hit the starter ?
took the motor out and took the head offWhat did you take apart?
the lines to the injectors are not even on the pump i was just trying to get fuel out of the delivery valves and the pump is turning overOK, I'm not going to pay any attention to the soleniod for now, get back to that later. You have fuel coming to the injection pump and with the soleniod held up nothing comes out of the fuel lines, and that has been checked because the lines have been cracked while the engine is cranked, right? So with the engine cranking, fuel coming to the pump, soleniod held up and no fuel coming out of the lines, the engine does not start. Is the injection pump turning ?
OK you turn the key to ON and the lift pump is moving fuel to the injection pump because the line coming in can be cracked and fuel comes out. Now lets go back to the Seleniod. I do not believe you can move the fuel shut off seleniod by hand. If you move it by hand it is not opening the valve. All the research I see there is no way to get at it, so your missing 12V to the start side of the soleniod.the lines to the injectors are not even on the pump i was just trying to get fuel out of the delivery valves and the pump is turning over
