Hi, thanks for the updated information and sorry for the delay. I had family visiting this weekend and was unavailable. If you are not getting diesel fuel to the fuel filter and housing check for a faulty fuel supply pump and for restrictions and leaks between the tank and pump. Verify you have good fuel pressure around 80-90 PSI. If the fuel supply is good verify you have crank sensor/cam sensor signal for the ECM to command the injectors to fire. Let me know
