truck problems

Hey i just installed a new injection pump on my 89 7.3l idi and it wont start on it own power. I'll give it a shot of ether after some hard starting then it'll run but stall out if i let it idle before it gets warm. Even after it warmed up it wont start on its own. I've bleed the line when running and even after we let it idle for a while like 20 or minutes it'll shut off. So if anyone could help I'd appreciate I'm just completely stumped on it.

its not getting enough fuel, you must have an air leak somewhere, check the fittings around the fuel filter housing and the return lines
