99 Chieftain 5.9 Cummins wont stay runing

Engine was running with reduced power so I changed filters it seemed to not be picking up fuel so I changed lift pump same thing if I get system primed it will run for a few minutes then die if you pull filter not on engine it is not full it acts like it wont pick up fuel from tank it has 3/4 does the supply line just go into tank or does it have some type of screen on the end can I blow air down the line.

I would look for a pinhole in the line from tank to lift pump, I'm thinking it's sucking air in.
