Case 1494 Not Getting Fuel

I have a 1985 Case 1494. It's been running great until it sputtered out and died here recently. I have had this happen before. I checked the line coming from the fuel tank, checked the bowl. I got it to start again, only to die after about 3 minutes. I went ahead and replaced the filters (it had been a while). I could start it, but it would die like it had early. I checked the filter at the injection pump. It's clean.
When I take the fitting off going into the fuel filters, I can pump the primer and hear the diesel coming out of the fitting. Once I connect that fitting back on, I can only get one pump and the primer goes limp. Does anyone know any steps I can take to see where I am not getting fuel. It doesn't see to be from the tank. Any help is appreciated.

Does it have NAPA/WIX brand filters by chance? And was the common mistake made of putting an extra O ring in the filter top outer groove? That's the fuel inlet, and must be open. I've made lots of service calls to correct that mistake..

Did you open the bleeders at the pump? They take a 5/16" wrench.

What brand of filters?
