Hey guys, well my truck didn't want to start after I went to do an errand. I tried to jump it thinking it was the batteries no luck. I had a bad number 8 glow plug, I changed that and will soon be changing all 8 again in a couple of days since I had to order it. Then I bought new batteries since now it didn't want to crank at all. It worked for one day now it doesn't want to start at all, I mean it cranks but won't turn over. Any ideas what it might be??? Thanks in advance guys

Try pumping the fuel primer until it's firm, then crank it.

Really sounds like your losing prime, truck is old enough to need a filter head rebuild which is not a difficult or expensive task. Basically your filter head probably has a small air leak which is letting your fuel filter drain down.

"Cranks but won't turn over." Can you clarify.

Ok I primed the fuel filter and there was bubbles before it was good so I'm thinking there's a leak. Maybe a bad or cracked filter housing, I'm not sure.
Sorry bout the whole crank but won't turn over, what I meant was it crank but won't start. Thanks again
