Running ruff and power loss

So about 6 months ago I bought a 1995 f-250 7.3l and it ran grate until I was an idiot and I ran one of the tanks completely empty (at least that's what I think did it). It started shaking when driving up slight inclines and has power Los and idles ruff. I changed the fuel filter but when I did it I noticed at the bottom of the filter housing there is about a eighth of an inch of black debri. Is this my problem and if so how do I flush this debri out? Do I need to clean my injectors or anything else?

Youll need to remove the fuel bowl completely and clean it out. But in doing so you will need to buy new orings for all the fuel line fittings. By then you may as well buy the whole o-ring rebuild kit from diesel-o-rings.com

Put it back in and fire it up. It will take a bit though to get the whole system bled and pressurized.

These older trucks are also known to have the fuel pickup screen break apart in the tank and plug up the suction tube with pieces of plastic.
