It sounds like it is starving for fuel - which I suspect is why you replaced the pump and filter. I suspect your fuel pick up in the tank is clogging. The new ULSD fuel apparently eats away at the tank lining. The debris gets sucked up and clogs the in tank fuel pickup. After you let it sit for a while, the debris floats away, only to clog it up again when restarted.

When you drop your tank, make sure and clean or remove the filters that are in the "mixing" part of the fuel pick up assembly.
