Exclamation 1995 Discovery 1- passenger side cylinders not firing

I have a 1995 Disco 1 with rebuilt motor-heads replacement etc. Vehicle cranks up with very rough idle, running only on 4 cylinders drivers side. Just installed new fuel injectors, power to injectors seems to be good from wiring harness, 32 -34 psi on fuel rail, spark from new wires and plugs but fuel injectors seem to not be receiving signal to distribute fuel. My guess anyway. Any ideas on problem? Could it be bad ECU? If the ECU is bad will it still run on 4 cylinders? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1995 should be a distributor engine. I'd look there for your lack of spark.

Sounds like injector control the way I read it.
How did it run before the engine work?

Yes, one bank's injectors fire at the same time and on a single circuit. So it is possible that there is something wrong with that circuit that is stopping a whole bank from firing.
