Default Backhoe problems

I am having a problem with my 1988 580K starting, once I get it running it will run with out problems. It seems like it is losing prime and I wind up cracking all the fuel lines to bleed any air out of the lines. The fuel filters have been changed and I have not found any leaks in the system, but when it sits over night it will start for maybe 2 to 3 seconds and then I have to mess around for an hour to get it started again. Could this be the injector pump getting tired?

A friend of mine was having that same problem with a tractor. He was having to shut the fuel off everytime if it was going to sit for more than an hour or so. He ended up putting an online check valve in to keep the fuel from draining back out of the system.

Thanks for the idea, but I am really looking to fix the problem which I am thinking is an injector pump problem but i don't want to buy a new one unless I am sure.
