Did you pull the Injection pump gear cover off for any reason? If you did chances are you moved the gear and it's out of time. The pump will only go in one way the gear cant move with the cover left on. Check through the threads their is one on how to check the gear timing without pullings the front cover off the engine. It's a little tricky but it works.

Yup, a tooth off is a mile off

After my first frusterating experience with this, I figured out how to do HGs (6.9L) w/o removing the belly-pan, sorta crude but it works and if I absolutely have to remove the IP, it comes off complete with the cover after the timing is marked on the crank and IP gear cover!
