So you could have a faulty lift pump you should hear it with the key in the on position.. something still frozen or blocked in The IFSM to the engine, Try running the engine offf a bucket of clean fuel with Diesel 911 added too it. Hook right into the supply fitting on the engine eliminating the fuel line from the tank. . make sure you also fill the filter with half 911 and clean diesel
