6.0 fuel problems

2 weeks ago my 2003 6.0 diesel quit in the driveway. No fuel was getting to the 2nd filter bowl, so I removed the 1st fuel pump and it was all clogged up with red rusty looking goo and dirt and junk.
I cleaned it out good, put on a new filter, and the bowl filled right up, and it has run fine until today.
It acted exactly the same, but when I took the pump off and looked inside it was still nice and clean. With the feed to the engine removed it does not pump fuel out at all when I turn the key. The pump makes noise, but nothing is coming out.

How can I test the pump besides what I am already doing? Is it common for the pump to fail?

Well it went from bad to worse. Now the fuel pump isn't coming on at all.

What's the voltage supposed to be at the pump?

A good scan tool can tell you what the LPOP is putting out for pressure, but it sounds like lack of maintenence killed it, and maybe a few injectors

the fuel pump should run constantly at 100 psi and the regulator regs it at 65 + or - 5 psi the pump is probably burnt right up so replace it and go from there
