I assume this is mechanical injection engine and not electronic. If you loosen high pressure line to an injector , do you get fuel squirting or just dribbling? Did new engine come with injection pump already installed? Is the fuel shutoff solenoid getting battery voltage when the key is on?

It's electronic injection sir. Has to bleeder screws one on fuel filter houseing and one on water neck where the fuel passes back trough the head I don't have alot of knowledge of iveco engines but I'm not getting any diagnostic codes while cranking.

I don't know beans about the electronic engines. I will opt out and see if anyone else will answer. Please do not respond to me or it will lock the question to me. Sorry.
