How does it start hot after two hours use, shut off about 5 minutes, better or worse? That's where pump trouble shows up most. Do you get blue/white smoke when starting cold, and clears as engine warms up, that would point to compression if the fuel is known good quality cetane rating. You can try cranking the engine about 4 or 5 seconds with the fuel rod off, then turn it on while cranking. This helps build compression heat BEFORE the fuel is injected, doing this can help some engines with lower compression.

Starts great after the first start. No real blue/white smoke when starting either. Thanks for the info!

Not sure how many hours are on the pump. I'm beginning to suspect quality of fuel. I will change the fuel filters - thanks!
