You might need to bypass/replace a fuel supply/return line here - they can rust from the outside, restricting the interior. Do your valve adjustments ( 1 hour of easy work). Then do your injection pump timing using the drip method (either PeachParts or Diesel Giant). Your primer pump should be the "new type" (black knob) and your overflow lines need to be new fabric covered lines (Eurotruck/Dealer). If you aren't running up to max potential from here, you've missed something. The secondary filter (90-degree) should be free of debris but may safely be dark. Be sure to test with a full tank of Diesel. If problems arise when below 50% you may have a plumbing issue or clogged tank screen (likely with your rust breeder).

I with the holes in your old tank (presumably from rust) you've got to expect that a fair amount of particulate may have made its way into the filters, but hopefully not into the IP or nozzles.
