DieselTech, David P,
I think DieselTech has the proper assessment at this point. I am getting lots of white smoke when cranking. I've cracked all the injector connections to make sure air has been eliminated. I've double and triple checked. When I cracked the lines to the injectors it squirted fuel with good pressure.
I've put my new truck battery on as a boost to give it as much cranking power / speed. It just cranks away and never really kicks. When I gave it ether it just burns through it and goes back to rolling on the starter. It makes an odd popping noise back out the windbox as it burns the ether, something i've never heard before. That coupled with the blow by leads me to suspect that compression has been degraded to the point that I can't start as you have suggested.
Are there any further tests that can be done to confirm this assessment prior to committing to a tear down?
As always, thanks for your expertise gentlemen.
