    The fuel pump normally runs full until it pressurises the system, is it doing that. Crack off each of the injector pipes with the ignition on and let them bleed through, dont set fire to the fokir tho, clean up as you go, plenty rags etc. Then get a squirty bottle with some fuel an fook it down the intake as it turns over, it saves the battery and helps it bleed through.
