no fuel at injectors

for two years, my ford lehman 65hp runs fine. last month put in new racor and secondary filters. No problem. Today didn't want to start. switched on the axuliary electric pump, cracked the two bleed screws on the high pressure fuel pump - fuel comes bursting out but no fuel at the ends of fuel line into the injectors even after tightening the two screws. Wife is top side pushing the starter, turning the engine an fuel pump. Shouldn't I see plenty of fuel at the loosened injector lines? My mechanic, over the cell phone, miles away believes the fuel pump is fine. afterall, he says , it cost thousands to rebuild - really?
