Chris:
I lined up 2 people with sets of new injectors for you when you were having trouble while in Arizona.
Steven never got a call from you.
Bill remained on standby with his new set of 4.
I never heard back from you either.
Spent a lot of my time to line up help for you that it appears you didn't take advantage of.
Still have the box containing 2 used injectors for the "plan B" in case you couldn't get a new set in the back of my 110.
Both I went to the trouble to pull out of running engines to try and help your situation.

Is there (+) power to the fuel shutoff when the key is switched on?
Without the solenoid energized there will be no fuel delivery.

The solenoid can also fail and get stuck closed. Pull the solenoid, remove the guts of the valve, ensure that there is no stuff in there. Reassembly without valve guts and see if it runs.

And I'm working on the assumption, you have verified there is good fuel flow into the injection pump from the lift pump.

Are you getting spray? Just hook one injector outside of the engine with the other injector lines disconnected and crank the engine. You can check the spray patterns in the field easily. There should be 5 atomized jets from each nozzle. At the same time, you can verify the pump is pushing fuel to all four injectors.

Never heard of an injector completely failing before.

Thanks for the advice guys ..its little hard to think at 4 am in the middle of know where so Here's the update...ended up at a diesel shop where we tested re shimmed and cleaned the injectors ....there shitty but will work ...also found gas in my last fill up which pretty much rendered the 130 useless..after draining and changing filter ...she fired right up ..i went back to station to find pumps locked out explained my situation and they had no problem paying the cost for the repair and fuel ....so im contiuning on with making new friends in Colorado as my journey continues
