Truck cranks good and idles well. And runs good for about halfmile. Then it acts like it is starfin for fuel and then go, s dead. I can let it sit for a few secounts adn crank it up and it will run again. I have changed the gas filter twice. The first time I changed it it was real dirty the secount time it was perty clean. I have duel tanks on this truck. If I turn on the key and mash the bleeder valve I have no presure or gas coming from it. But when I crank the truck I have pressure on the bleeding valve. This truck has set for 2 years and not driven much in that time. The first thing I did was to drain the fuel tanks and put fresh gas in them.I don't no if I have a fuel pump bad or witch on may be bad.

That seems more like the TFI ignition module. Test for spark when it wont start.
