96 7.3 losing prime

Truck runs great until it sits all day or over night. Is there a check valve in the fuel bowl? I have replaced the feed and return lines even the ones on the engine. It doesn't seem to be leaking anywhere it just drains the bowl any help or thoughts would be great thanks.

Could it be draining to the tube on the pass side of the motor (over the top of the ft tire, against the motor) that's the "dump" for the water drain valve?

no its not running out the drain you cant see it leaking anywhere. It runs great once you bleed it out.

Also when you had the lines off did you happen to clean the fpr screen?? There is a ball check behind the screen that could fall out which would cause this issue...
