leaking fuel lines

i found that my fuel lines comming from the bowl to the pump in the vally of the motor was leaking. i pulled the bowl or filter housing what ever you call it an replaced the robber lines. i filled the bowl back up with diesel an reinstalled the filter. truck kinda has a jerking feeling like maybe i got air in the lines. i dint not drain the bowl i jut cut the lines an let it out. did i do it wrong? if so how do i get the air out? thanks

The air should purge itself. I've never had any problems with air in the lines and I've never had to prime the system/refill the bowl even after replacing the pump or rebuilding the fuel bowl. They've always started right up. Did you do anything else while the bowl was out like clean it, reseal it, etc? Cheers!

the super-duty section. I saw on your sig and profile pic that you have a 2000 model super-duty truck. This section is geared more towards OBS style trucks (1994-1997 model powerstrokes). That is not to say that we can't help but you might get faster answers in the super-duty section.
