Engine issues when hot

I don't exactly know where I can begin, the truck has a New PDM, new fuel filter, new lift pump, new sending unit/fuel pump, starter was replaced over winter, PDM IS Located in the grill, the truck has been creating an issue for me where it runs and when I drive it it's fine, however when I take it out and don't leave it running the truck will die. I experienced the issue today where I ran it fine but temp gage read 210 and the truck didn't want to start until i sprayed started fluid and bleed the filter on top of the block. I don't know if air in the system is the issue or what it could be. I have a k3500 98 dually 6.5 TD

Welcome to DieselPlace
I moved your post over to its own thread for better views and responses to your issues.

First, never use ether (starting fluid) to start a 6.5L. You can cause severe damage to the engine.

Make sure the starter has the support bracket in place. Without it the starter can tear itself off of the engine and cause severe damage to the engine block.

Did you also install the correct tank sock on the sender berfore you installed it?
The tank sock that comes on the sending units are not correct and will restrict fuel flow.
