When you put air in the ICP port ,if it sounded like and air leak in the lower part of the engine then it is likely the fitting on th e high pressure pump,but since you have no ICP pressure at all when cranking,I would change the IPR as it is stuck open,if it were the fitting on the pump,it would build a small amount of pressure still.
