Lack of progress report. Electric pump wouldn't draw fuel. it partially fills the clear line then won't draw anymore. I put a finger on the suction side and I can feel a bit of suction but not much. Tried to gravity feed. That wasn't working either. Enough to fill the filter but that's about it. Removed the mechanical fuel pump, looks fine, and when I cover the suction end with my thumb and push the lever I can feel some suction. Again though, not a lot.

Saw a drip come from the bottom of the filter base but there's been so much spilled fuel that I don't know if it's from the filter base or not. Regardless I still ahve to figure out why nothing will draw fuel.

No matter what Dieselplace may say, I am not a diesel technician, nor expert or specialist. Just a cheap guy with old truck that needs to run
