I have to assume it is the engine loosing power. Have the two fuel filters been replaced? Have you checked the fuel flow from the tank to the first filter? With a gravity flow system, any restriction at the tank or the first hose from the tank, will drastically reduce power . Most power problems with diesel engine, is a lack of fuel to the injection pump.
