New fuel pump now doesnt start

Hi guys. I replaced my fuel pump today with an oem replacement one. Went to start the truck. It ran fine for around a min and then all the sudden the entire truck started to shske so i shut it off. I looked and the fuelbowl was full of fuel. I went to try and start it again. It will roll over but wont start and just sounds like its missing. Any and all help is appreciated

Crank.
I'd check fuel pressure to be sure though

You could go electric fuel. It really is an awesome technology. It is the best thing I've done on my truck. The only reason I am saying that it because of how much of a difference it makes. I also had no issues with any air in the system.

Assuming it's air in the lines (sounds like it), it's a real PITA with that mechanical pump.

There is no good way to purge the fuel system except for cranking it. Turning the engine over with the starter will move some fuel through. Crank for 30 secs or so, then give the starter a couple of minutes to cool so you don't burn it up. Then crank again. Once you get it going, it will run rough, just give it some throttle when it coughs. It might take a few minutes to cough that air through.

Does anyone else know if you can hook a hand vacuum pump up to the fuel pressure port on the bowl? If so, that would be an OK way to suck some fuel through.

Yeah I totally understand. I was just listing the benefits in case you were on the fence. I think you are on the right track with air in the lines though. It will be bad for a while and then clear up and be just fine.

Bleeding air would only help right away after changing the pump. Now air is in the heads.
