Hello and Welcome -

My name is MIKE -Im happy to advise / help you -

With this - basically if you have fuel as you say but not at the injectors, the fuel pump is the likely fault having failed..

But these do suffer with bad connections on the pipes where they connect to the fuel filter - check that .. If they are loose or bad in any way, you need to deal with that - remember , a diesel system will suck air but not necessarily leak out diesel - so even if its dry - check for bad connection.. If its leaking diesel anywhere on the system and / or sucking air - you will have what you have.

Too - if the fuel filter is old - replace it and retry as it could be clogged.

Failing all the basics, a faulty fuel pump is the suspect - you are best having it checked at a local diesel specialist then as they have all the test equipment needed to verify this - and they can of course fix it for you--

Im very pleased to have helped / advised you - If you need anything else at all - by all means get back to me - Im always happy to help more if needed..
