Wont stay running after head studs

Ok buddy did head studs and front cover. Got everything back together and bled the fuel using a makeshift tool like fords to bleed it on the bango bolt off of the fuel cooler. The truck will start for a few minutes then dies. It will run longer (7mins) if we leave it at idle or shorter 1 1/2mins if we raise the rpm. What can it be thanks

Also it doesnt start every time we turn the key. Its everytime we bleed about a gallon out of the banjo bolt then crank the truck for about 30 seconds it will start and run for a little. Could it be sucking in air and would that cause it to shut down? Thanks

Yea got it all figured out. It was the injectors on the driver side that werent torqued right, but we figured that out after we took the turbo off, tightened all the lines under there. This whole process was done with cab on btw. Headstuds and front cover. Not the easiest but thats what we had to do since we had to lift.
