Not sure boss. I've never ran into any issues with starting the truck after a fuel filter change when doing the prime procedure? May sound dumb, but drain some fuel out, take the cover back off the lower filter housing like your chaging it again, and go through the same steps as if you were changing the filter again with the priming ect. Other than that dont really know since the truck already ran once after you cleaned and reinstalled the HFCM.

Can you check for DTC's on your Mini Max. Not sure, as I have a Spartan. How bad did the filters look?

The mini maxx will let you scan. I've done it.

Finally got it started after 2 days , Not sure what I did , But I took the HFCM back apart and pulled its filter out and rechecked the manifold gasket and then primed the streator valve till I got solid fuel , primed some more and finally she fired. Thanks for all the advice , This one about whooped me .

The best way to prime the fuel system after fuel filter changes is to turn the key from off position to on position waiting 30 seconds on then off. I usually do this 10 or 12 times. Six is enough sometimes but it doesn't hurt anything to do it a dozen or more times to be sure it starts and runs the first time. I never touch the schrader valve when I prime the system. If it is quiet and you leave the driver door open you can hear the electric fuel pump run then quit on each key cycle.
