Pretty sure fuel pump, wanna make sure

2003 6.0. No start. Just got done doing egr delete, ipr valve, and an injector. Wouldn't crank before the work and still won't. When you turn the switch on you can hear the fuel pump running, but it's not pumping anything. The top fuel bowl does not fill with fuel. While the pump is running and you look in the fuel bowl it will occasionally push a little into it but not much. Anything else to check? What you guys think. Yes, motorcraft filters.

I'd think that'd be enough but you might wanna fill it full to be sure.

sounds like the fuel pump to me... or a bad restriction in the supply feed.

Re: Pretty sure fuel pump, wanna make sure

That's what I was thinking could be a possibility. What would be the best way to check that?

Blow the lines. Hook a suction device to the fuel lines from the tank. It should not have not create too much suction (Inches of mercury) - I just can't remember the number off hand, but 2-5 comes to mind.

For the pump, you could run it separately out of the vehicle. My best guess is it is you pump or a blockage in the HFCM.
