First, it would help if we new what motor we are talking about
did you check the basics? Compression, fuel pressure and spark> > did you tune it up before installing?

300 inline 6
Fuel pump changed new. I have no clue if the mechanic did compression check, fuel pressure. Would any of this be checked/done when the fuel pump was changed?
The engine is a used engine from a wrecking yard. Supposedly it ran well and was tested.

I never trust a junkyards word as they just want there money.
We need the exact pressure for fuel.
Check all the basics first before proceeding

As a general rule, what could cause this type of thing? My father said that even though it fuel injected, he said he thinks it still has a form a carburetor. Dad suggest the soft plug on the bottom of the automatic choke could be gone.
Choking so the butterfly is closed?

Ok, I'll have to ask the mechanic about that. Fuel pressure.
I sure don't trust that junk yard, that is for sure.

I guess we will have to leave it at this for now, till we can get hold of the mechanic.
Can you email me if you think of something?
