Arrow is there a happy 6.0 owner

i have a 2005 f350. bought it with 102000 miles and drove for 3000 miles. truck died in the road. since then i have relpaced the ipr valve added a delete kit. the ipr valve had the screen blowed out. i also replaced the stc fitting under hpop. put every thing back together truck ran for about 10 min and shut off again. will not crank back. eveyone tells me to get it running and sell it. i have owned it about 2 months. i bought the truck to use on the farm. the tech at the local ford dealership said i would always have problems with the 6.0. i like the truck and need to work with it but cant afford work on it every other week. is there any hope.

You didn't go deep enough on the IPR with the screen blown out, there's a screen under the oil cooler that's torn. It feeds oil to the H-P pump. It tears when debris build up on it, this happens when the oil filter or by pass valve is damaged.
