There was fuel in the filter (the whole system was designed by an idiot after consulting with a moron) so I think maybe there is an electric shutoff tripped. Does this truck have a fuel pump like a gasser or Cummins or does the IP pull the fuel?
I would like to replace the stock filter with a spin on but there is a maze of lines and wires coming out of the mount. I don't want to start hacking until I know what does what and goes where.
Is there anywhere on line that I could get a wiring diagram or a repair manual for the truck.
Any help would be appreciated.
Talk to Richarddhoward when he calms down a bit, L.O.L. he's a diesel tech by trade and would know more than most people do. All of my diesel knowledge is out of date and only pertains to 18 wheelers which is a totally different beast than what you have. But it does sound like you've gotten some "bad fuel". and your safety cut off switch might be bad on your fuel pump.
