slacken a pipe on an injector and crank the engine over to see if there is fuel up to injectors ,this might be all that is needed to bleed out the last bit of air ,if its a manual try a tow start would be another thing to try then see if it starts on the key when its hot telling you it could be heater plugs

i was wondering does the make of the injecters have to match the make of the pump as that is the only thing that is different from the heads i have changed over?

Do a search and you'll find other people have had the same problem as shown on this link, but I'm sure there is more by doing a search.

If you're talking about diesel, I'm told that the injectors and pump have to match. Lucas CAV injectors operate at a lower pressure than Bosch ones. The injectors are easy enough to swap over with the correct socket from Halfords.

Also, check that the fuel solenoid on the front of the pump hasn't come loose

still haven't got pug started everything is working,timing right,glow plugs hot,injecters firing but still no go,also i have noticed that the battery terminals are getting rather hot when trying to start car is this normal or could it be a fault which is causing it not to fire up.

{Moved to other thread you already started, as is related - DD}

Probably will get hot if your trying and trying to start it. How hot's the starter motor getting, these are quite expensive when they burn out.
