    Does it run after you have started it using easy start?

    BTW, once you start using easy start you will continue to have to use it. The detonation of the ether eventually damages the piston rings and it will not start without it.

    Have you checked the glow plugs are working properly? When did the problems start? What we the symptoms the very first time, and prior to the first time it wouldn't start? Any prolonged cranking? What happens if you just crank for a long time, and white smelly smoke from the tailpipe?
    Why did you change the pump, rail and injectors?

    check fuel rail pressure (with a diagnostic device and not manually), if its not building enough pressure it wont let the injectors fire up

    Not sure how your managing to get it to start on easy start, where are you spraying it into? the air intake?

    Start with the basics

    Are you getting low pressure fuel?

    Do you have diagnostics to read rail pressure?

    Are you getting a good supply of low pressure?

    Have you got fuel all the way to injectors?
