Thank you for info.

Do you have a spark tester?

If you do one at a time check spark at each plug do you have spark to both plugs?

Remove outlet line from fuel pump and run into a bucket crank over and make sure you have good flow yes/no?

Let me know

If you don't have a spark tester use a old plug and set on engine to make sure you have good blue spark to both plugs

Haven't had time to check what you told me to check yet. One question though should the fuel filter be full when it is running
Expert:  spankyjr1 replied 1 year ago.

Not always,,especially if you just changed it,,, takes time to bleed all air out,,if you want loosen outlet and let it fill all the way up,,then if you have air it after that would not be correct.
