SOURCE: dodge diesel lost its prime!
You have to loosen your injector lines one at a time and have someone crank the engine. once you get fuel to that injector,tighten it and move onto the next one. This will be a lengthy process and make sure you have good batteries cause this process could drain them. Good luck

Well, one problem is, if its an 8.1, its not a diesel. The 8.1, or Vortec 8100, is a gas engine. The DuraMax is a 6.6 engine. There is usually not a priming system on a gas engine, because the fuel pumps will usually get it through the smaller filters used quick enough you dont need them. However, if it is a DuraMax engine, then right on top of the fitting where you mount your diesel filter, there is a primer pump and an air bleed valve. What you do is, open up that air bleed valve ( its a little black plastic octagon shaped thing on the top of the filter mount) then you pump the primer (the silver button looking thing) until you get diesel squiting out the air vent without too many air bubbles or gurgles.

At the rear of the injection pump there are four lines, each goes to an injector. loosen the flare nut at just one injector. crank the engine over until you see fuel spitting out. Close the fuel line,vehicle should be running. If not then its something else check the fuel filter, fuel shut-off, and check for any fuel leaks.

First GET A FIRE EXTINGUISHER
This can be a very tough thing to do and especially if you're by yourself.
You do not mention if the vehicle is now running? If the vehicle isn't running you will need to have a fully charged battery. With a charged battery turn the key one and open the fuel rail pressure release valve which you will allow to flow for about 4 -5 seconds with fuel. If you get some fuel mixed with air coming from the bleeder valve it is what you should get.
If you get only air with the fuel pump running then allow it to 'bleed' air until you get fuel. Once you get a fairly steady stream of fuel shut off the valve and attempt to start the vehicle. Once the vehicle starts you will want to bleed the fuel after a few minutes.
I want to have you try starter fluid CAREFULLY first as most smaller vehicles will recover from running out of fuel without having to bleed the air out. They will many times resolve the problem from just running about 20 minutes or so. Please consult your handbook before attempting this.
AGAIN - It is BEST to have two people just in case of fire. A GOOD fire extinguisher is best.
Best of it - hope you get it running quick.
