74 massey 1135. Quit the other day just a bit after starting, has lots of fuel, thought maybe the pickup so put a 3/8 hose into the tank and ran to lift pump, will idle about 15 minutes before it starts to be all over the place on rpms. Trying to use it will last about 5 mins if you don't get out and crack the bleeder on top of the filter housing. is the filter housing under pressure or can there be a place it can suck air?

First make sure the supply pump works right, if one of the two check valves gets out of place it won't keep the fuel system charged with 4-5 PSI as it should. One way to check if it's working right and filters are OK there should be plenty of fuel at the injection pump control cover bleed screw with the engine running, no fuel means the pump is not working OR if NAPA/WIX filters are used THEY may be on wrong. The filter top outer groove is the fuel inlet passage, and must be open. Putting an extra O ring in that groove severely limits or stops fuel flow completely, and is a common mistake on that filter style. Also make sure the constant bleed orifice is open on the final filter top, on six cylinder engines it has a pigtail line that goes to one of the injector top return bolts. It's there to remove any trapped air BEFORE it can get into the injection pump, which will cause missing, and/or shutdown.

I have lots of fuel, the problem is after a bit it gets airated. Now if I take this line off, should there be something coming out of it when I have it running?

Remove the line and with engine off, work the hand primer. Fuel should come out the fitting orifice, if it's plugged, remove and clean it with a small wire. The SUPPLY line from the tank MAY have air suction side leaks too, which will upset the whole system. As I said before, with engine running, there MUST be fuel at the injection pump cover bleed screw. Don't loosen the bleed screw next to the pump name tag while running, that one MUST be air free though when bleeding the system. If system still has lots of air, disconnect the supply pump inlet line from the fuel tank, and place in a separate test fuel supply tank and see if the air trouble goes away. If it's OK then the supply line is the problem. I used to "bottle feed" diesel cars and trucks often to then find supply line trouble. Check all the inlet side connections, if any rubber grommets are loose or cracked they won't leak fuel, but will let air in causing lots of trouble. There's also a rubber hose under the step plate above the right tank that connects two steel inlet lines that MAY need replaced as it could also be cracked, letting air in.
