I agree with you fully...

I was more trying to get the OP to be clear on what he really meant.

Oh I hate harmony



Best to bleed the fuel system with the mechanical arm on the lift pump or a suction canister from the Injection pump Elvis.

Cranking the engine to bleed the fuel system on a dry Injection pump is just asking for trouble. And after you learn the correct method it take less time to do it right.

Will be great to hear you are burning fuel again soon.

Go to or call your local NAPA, copper crush washers are commonly used on oil pan drain plugs. I get 2 with each oil filter kit for my 524td

Did you get any washers with your gasket kit. Seems like some of the small ones are in there.

AB had the washers...well, they had 6 and 2 are on "back-order". Replaced copper seal washers on cylinders #1-#3, #4 not leaking at present.
Still no start condition. Here is what I know:
Timing pin inserted neatly into pump flange while woodruff key on crank was at 12 o'clock and cam gear mark lined up with casting mark as in the manual. Flywheel locking pin was inserted as well.
Fuel is pumping out of tops of loosened injector fitting when cranking.
Compression test completed. Cylinders #1-#3 @ 340-360psi. Cylinder #4 @ 325 psi.
Unobstructed air flow to the intake side of the turbo.
Engine will run for a second or less when I atomize a small amount of gasoline directly into the intake chamber, but produces a lot of white smoke from somewhere. By the time I am able to get a look under the hood after depressing my pushbutton starter, the white smoke's origin is unable to be identified.
Any guidance will be appreciated.

Do this simple test and find out if you did the same mistake as me that took me two weeks to find.Unplug wire from fuel solenoid and plug test lite to it,hang the lite so u can see'it from inside the truck.Crank the starter (in your case the starter button) and see if you have power while you cranking.if no power you found it.

Just thinking, Your flywheel should have two indentations in it. Don't know why? but, both of mine did/do. Could you check to make sure you are at TDC when everything is lined up? Seems like you have checked everything else.
