8.2 will not start Jesse 12-30-08  
I have 1987 GMC 7000 series ex state dump truck with 110,000 miles that will not start. It has a Detroit 8.2 engine, always has started for the past 10 years. I had it started about 3 weeks ago with no problem. Tried to sart yesterday at 45-50 degrees and it would not attempt to fire. I replaced both the primary and secondary fuel filters completely filling them with fuel before installing. I finally got it to hit, fire but could not get it over 1000-1200 RPM. Ciuld not get it to fire again unless it sat for some period of time. It did not run over a minute or so, just seemed like it was starving for fuel. Can some one give a suggestion or systematic way to trouble shoot this problem. Any help wpuld be greatly appreciated

I had the same problem.pull the filters off and fill them with 911 its in a red bottle for diesls. then get someone in the cab to start the engine while u spray ether in the air cleaner not directly.but mist it until the motor will run on its own
