Glad I have a powerstroke!

Well I just got to work on my first cummins. My cousin called said his fuel guage must be off as he was reading a quarter tank and the truck died on him. We put 12 gallons in on a 35 gallon tank now reads better then half and it started up after 10 seconds of cranking. I thought there was a primer on the injector pump? We couldn't find one Anyway it wasn't too painful its only 16 degrees out and winds are gusting to 40 right now

What year is the Dodge? I've changed injection pumps on CR CTD's 3 times and each time they take about 6-8 seconds or so to fire afterwards, even after cycling the key several times to let the lift pump fill it..
