Fuel leak - now won't start

Hey Boys n Girls,

Anyone care to venture what my problem is here? (Well - not the obvious one!). My 350SDL just started to leak fuel at the Injector Pump. I think it is a fuel delivery seal for the fuel line closest to the radiator. I was going to attempt it myself after purchasing the special socket for the spline nut. Today, I started it and it started and immediately died. Now all it does is turn but wont start. Is it possible this leak could be the cause of my starting problem? I would have thought that the 5 other cylinders would still fire. The local indy thinks so too. Seems to me they are connected somehow though I dont have the answer. Maybe a high pressure thing is the problem? Any help would be appreciated. This guy cant get to it till next week. Ahh the joys of rural life!

How is the fuel flow to the rest of the injectors? Air in the lines will stop any diesel from running properly.

Got air in the system when you replaced the seal? Easiest way i bleed the system is loosen up a couple of fuel line collars at the injectors, then crank the engine to push out the air.
