It's air bound. You will need to prime the system. Pull the filter off and fill it up. Pull the return line off the injection pump and fill it with fuel and make sure your lift pump is working. If it still doesnt fire then crack a few lines at the injectors and crank it till you get fuel then tighten them back up.

Also make sure you have power to the pump

When you first install a new injector pump you will have a load of air in the system, like stated above you need to prime the system. Crank a few seconds let it fit as few and keep doing this until you start getting smoke out the tailpipe, that lets you know your starting to burn the fuel. You then will be getting close to getting it running. If this dont help get back with us and let us know.
