Crank no start after engine replacement

I have a 2006 Chevrolet C5500 Kodiak. I put in a run tested Jasper in the truck. I dont know a lot about deisels. I've had the truck since 2014 have done many fuel filter replacements so I know it's not a problem getting fuel to the front. We shot just a touch of either to make sure it wasnt a electrical issue that was keeping it from firing. I think it's a problem getting fuel in the entire system so it can build fuel pressure. I cracked a line on the passenger side and cranked a bit, but it only trickeled out. I dont really no were to go from here. Its run tested so I know everything in the fuel system was working.

First thing...Never Use ether. If the glow plugs come on and ignite the ether the sound you would hear wouldn't be good news. I would start at the fuel filter housing. Prime it up and then check to see if it will start. If you are confident you are getting fuel then start looking at fuses. Stay with basic troubleshooting.
Requirements for diesel engines to start is air and fuel and of course the ECM.
I also have to ask is if Jasper sent you a period correct motor. You should have a LBZ motor or...a LLY depending on your VIN. Wrong motor could be a issue as well.

The high pressure side of the fuel system was empty. I was asking how to bleed and or prime the high pressure side? High side has no pressure. I cracked a line and cranked it, but fuel just trickled out.

to prime the fuel just press the primer pump located on your fuel filter housing. On top of the housing is a bleed screw. loosen it and prime until fuel bubbles out. It might take about 40 pumps to achieve this. Let us know if this works.

I have a good prime and its priming fine. I even removed the filter to make sure it was full of fuel. I put it back on and primed it again. the problem is fuel pressure on the high side. Everything is new on a run tested engine. I loosened a highpressure line and cranked it over, but fuel barely came out.

Make sure batteries are charged up and it takes a fair amount of cranking to fill the rails/lines back up if they were empty.

Is your Duramax same as mine? I was told that its a LBZ detuned to LLY has slightly smaller injectors and a little less hp. By the way how much is quite a bit? I thought I have cranked on it more than I wanted to already.

I would do like 15 seconds of cranking then pump the primer. Do this 3x and see if it starts to fire. It needs to be cranking over really good so the CP3 is putting some fuel into the rails/lines/injectors. Put a battery charger on it to help it crank over better.

I wouldn't think that your motor would be detuned. Your motor should be equal to a 2500HD/3500 truck. From what I remember only the Vans were detuned but never by smaller injectors. I looked up the part numbers for a van vs truck and the numbers are the same for the injectors. The ECM has alot to do with the tune. I have to ask this question. Do you think the ECM is at fault? This motor you have. Was it a complete motor? What did you have to do to make it complete?There should be a fuel port that you can put a gauge on to see what the fuel pressure is before the CP3. I would look to see what pressure you have there. Are the lines from the fuel filter on the correct side? Just asking because I really think you are not getting any fuel.
