First I cracked lines at injectors then saw the metal dust. Then I took the lines off at the pump. Been cranking a bit and getting nothing. Do I just have to wait? Keep cranking? Or should I take off the injector pump?

I’ve been cranking for a while. Was getting little air bubbles and some metallic powder I. The fuel so I stopped right away. Nothing is coming from injector at all. Fresh diesel, new filter. Kill switch disengaged. It’s cranking fine.

Take out this plug as see if you get pulsed fuel when you crank it.

Just opened it up and there was a ton of fuel. Waiting for her to charge a little better to see if I can start getting some out from the outlets.
If your not getting any fuel out of the Injection pump,
You're going to have to pull the pump.
Remove and save all shims under the pump.
See if rack moves freely, if it does then,
Take/ Send the pump and the injectors to a fuel injection place to have them tested and rebuilt.
If the rack does not move freely or at all, then it's a very high probability the pump is beyond being rebuilt so be prepared to replace it.
