Thank you for that

was it low on fuel,

sounds like you may have picked up some trash from fuel tank

crack the injector lines loose at the injector

crank over make sure you have fuel coming out at lines

I could only get to one line to bleed which i did and manually worked the fuel pump. it started and runs well but still dies when
i lower the throttle real fast,don

Sorry for the delay

I still believe you have some trash in the tank or the filter is sucking air

run a clear line from the return to the tank

see if you have bubbles in line, if yes, sucking air

I hope this helped you
