You're correct on too much air in the fuel line still. Just crank on it till it starts. No real problem my friend.

Under the vehicle at the rear of engine where it is bolted to the transmission bell housing. You must raise the vehicle to access the starter. USE SAFETY STANDS TO SUPPORT THE TRUCK ONCE IT IS RASIED UP IN THE AIR. NEVER USE A TIRE JACK, EVER, EVER.

Yes, that is typical response to a gear going out. Pretty old tranny, you will need a replacement, local salvage yards, or look at Car-Part.com for a used unit from all over, US salvagers list used parts on there..

I am going to guess that you have a 3208 cat in that truck. The fuel
filter could be either a single or duel setup, with a dual filter they
are usualy side by side(primary+secondary) and most often mounted with a bracket to the fire wall or frame. Connected to the
injector pump with braided hose. The single should be mounted
close to the pump.Also check the line back to the tank, if you have
dual tanks, go to the one with the standpipe or feed tank.(the one with the lines coming from the top of the tank) Somone may have
put in an inline filter. If this information is for repair and not maintenance, that engine has an electric fuel shutoff in case of
low oil pressure or overheat. I hope I was of some help.
Good luck.

Your problem could possibly be the headlight switch.All the lights run through this switch and sometimes with age and wear the contacts quit making a connection.try replacing the switch.

Well most engines have a mechanical pump on the engine, but the E350 models used for motor homes and box vans also use an electric pump in the tank. The pressure rating is still 5-8 psi like the mechanical pumps.
Have you replaced the inline filter ?

Trace your fuel line up to engine, they should lead to straight to the pump. If the pump isn't mounted on the engine, usually lower part of block on drivers side, then it must be in the fuel tank itself. Being a 1989 model, its probably in the tank,
