Fuel issue

So i was driving home from work and my f250 started to sputter so i pull over. I get out and check the check valve on the side of the fuel filter and it blows air then i pull the filter and its only got about an inch of fuel at the bottom. I put fuel in the filter and truck started right up and ran for about 30 minutes then died again. A buddy of mine said its the lift pump going out what im wondering is how expensive and how hard is it to change. Any help would be great this is my daily driver and i need it fixed asap.

I would almost guarantee it is the fuel pump.

To do the swap should take a couple hours.

OK guys I changed out the lift pump in my 96 obs. Put fuel in the filter started her up and bleed it till fuel came out the valve I drove it about 15 minutes and she died from not enough fuel. When I checked the valve it was all air I put it on the trailer took it to a buddies and she started up just fine and ran great again. Has anyone had this issue or anything like it? Any help would be great I'm still new to this whole diesel world.

Did you replace your rubber hoses while you had the fuel bowl out?
