did you run her out? I have always just pulled the filter and make sure you put at least 10 gallons in the truck. Keep turning the key on to run the fuel pump till it quits. Should get lots of air and spitting fuel. Just keep draining the bowl till you get nothing but fuel coming into the bowl.

i must have ran it out, my guage still showed a little fuel and i have ran it past that point quite often but best I can figure is that it ran out possibly due to the hill I was parked on before that.

Right behind the fuel bowl is a yellow lever. Just turn it open then turn the key on the ignition but dont start it. And youll see fuel pouring out from the bottom.

the fuel system is electric on these trucks. remove the cap and turn the key to on but dont crank and watch the fuel bowl fill up. then turn the key off and put the filter on. then crank.
