are there any other symptoms and does it just die or fades?

Have you pressure tested the fuel system? Try capping off your return line and pumping it up and see if it holds. If it does, try priming the system( i use a small hand pump that i attach to the fuel pump) pump some fuel to it and see what happens. also, check your pickup tubes in the fuel tank, seen those fall off before and create the same issue

'Had a Mack 7427 in my shop for 2 years and couldn't sell it! Within a month of advertising on DieselEngineTrader.com I sold the engine to a guy in Oklahoma - was glad to get rid of it!'

'Great program, real easy to list engines.'

'I listed a surplus Watermota diesel on DieselEngineTrader. It took a few months to sell, but I was delighted as the engine was quite obscure and I never thought anyone would buy it!'
