Good morning, I hope I can help you.
The first thing to do is work the hand pump at the fuel filter to prime the system. Pump it up until it feels firm.
Next is to slacken the pipe connectors at the injectors a full turn. Now get someone to crank the engine over and till you see fuel escaping from the loosend pipes.
Now whilst it is still being cranked, tighten the pipes and it should now start. If not, then stop cranking, switch ignition off and on and let glowplugs heat before cranking again.
