NO START AFTER WVO.......

I have been running WVO for about 6 years in my 2000PSD CC/LB, and run a golden fuel system....

I recently had the WVO tank out for body and paint work, and it was out for about a month. I installed the tank and hooked everything back up today, filled the tank with clean WVO and a new filter......I drove it, switched her over to VEG and after about 20 minutes, it quit running. It acted like there was air in the lines and shuttered to a halt. It was to be expected there be air in the lines, and I didn't purge it before startup....so this is where I am...

I drained the fuel bowl, switched it back to diesel and sat on the side of the road and cranked it over after cycling the key.....It was popping, but not starting. I removed the fuel bowl filter, drained the fuel bowl and made sure I was getting fuel into the bowl. I again drained the bowl, filled it back up with fresh diesel and replaced the filter, as I have done several times in the past with out problems....I cannot get her to start. It just cranks.

any suggestions?

id start with, leaving the wvo on hold bud. Check all the fuses, especially the #30-30amp fuse which the pcm/idm is controlled by. Its also jhooked to the fuelbowl heater. You got the exact symptom of that fuse being blown.
