Exclamation 6.0L Air Lock - Won't Start

We changed both fuel filters, cranked and ran for about 45 seconds will not start.
Bled both filters agains and still won't start.
Getting fuel at both locations plus checked one fuel line.

Engine will turn but not getting even a hint of firing in the engine.

Any other suggestions?

How long did you crank on it "dry"? What was the original reason for changing both filters at the same time? Did it quit running or were you just doing routine maintenence?

Should you not change them both at the same time? I usually do the engine mounted one, then crawl underneath and start getting dirty!

I'm not a tech but, I hear the HPOP doesn't like running "dry" very much. Not dry on oil but fuel. But I could be wrong. It may just need some more air bled from the system.

Changed filters due to a reduction in power. Truck was cranked off and on for about five minutes .
We'll try to bleed the system more.

What is the best way to bleed the system: both filter points or somewhere else?

Air was stuck between the forward filter & injectors.
We gave it a quick shot of ether and away she went!

Thanks for the help guys!
