Nick, you should probably start a new thread on this as your issue likely isn't related to this one.
That said, you need to make sure you're getting high pressure oil pressure to the injectors. It takes a while to bleed the air out before it will start. Try cranking on it for 20-30 seconds, then let the starter cool down before cranking on it again. Doing this a few times should bleed the air out of the high pressure oil lines. If you have a way to monitor the high pressure oil pressure (Auto Enginuity, various scanners, or a manual 3-4000psi gauge plumbed into the head), that will be a good start. The injectors need ~500psi to start.
