Angry 05 Duramax no start

Calling all mechanics.

a. duramax would only start with eather. (sp)

b, Purchased used injectors. (8) Knocked. Balance test rediculous.

c. Ice pick trick done. no help.

d. Removed new injectors (8 used) and installed my old injectors that only worked with eather

e. NOW NOT starting with eather.

f. Purchased/installed fuel filter rebuild kit - seems to held pressure well. Removed all air (I think) from cap and nozzle near alternator

g. Removed all glow plugs and cranked. No fuel spraying

I briefly checked the fuses - why won't it fire??

PS. This all seemed to happen after replacing my transmission due to crack in bell housing. Would a TCM be the issue? Where is the TCM?

do not USE ETHER !

also i hope you had some background on your used injectors before you purchased them.

Tcm is on the fan shroud driver side , under a black plastic cover

I understand the ether- just trying to diagnose - electrical or injectors (fuel etc)

The used injectors had 79,000 miles out of a good motor. Truck wrecked. THEY HAVE A 90 DAY WARRANTY.
