    Sounds like a fuel supply issue, this truck has two fuel filters. Thinking about bypassing the fuel filters and using a separate fuel supply and running it direct.

    If you want to you can blow air in fuel tank using the vent line to pressure fuel system it will find leaks and put pressure on the return line

    Do not let any fuel that has not gone thru fuel filter get to inj. They WILL clog on nonfiltered fuel.
