    Ok just picked the GU up ,7 hours labour plus parts $<500 .
    Computer says IP and clear plastic hose says no leaks so everything points to IP , mechanic not convinced and investigates further and find an air lock past the point of the plastic hose .
    He has done some mods with blanking off and putting in a tee piece and replacing a crap load of perished hose , GU now runs like the ones in the commercial from years ago and I'm happy as a pig in mud .
    No longer throwing error codes and I've just given it a thrashing all good .

    Exactly , and what he did I can't quite explain due to meds im on and understanding just what he showed and explained but seems the point of fuel return was most of the problem .
    So he has bypassed it with the t piece , genius or hack who knows but I'm happy .
    Also another solution if any one else goes searching .

    Try one of these in addition to a new filter top one. Makes priming so much easier. Not all are diesel compatible. This one is cheap too. Mine, (not this specific one) has been on several years now, but if it ever fails it's easy to take out of the line & rejoin.

    Don't waste the money on one of these if you run a lift pump though as i found out recently. Soon as the ignition is on to open the fuel solenoid, the line pressurises and its impossible to squeeze the bulb. If you can bleed the system without the solenoid being energised, yes they are quicker. I discovered this after changing the IP, injectors and fuel lines. The Chev self primes off the lift pump alone, so I guess if the lift pump dies then I could use this, or just revert to the standard filter top pump.
