Default Good diesel mechanic in west Michigan?

Looking for someone to check out my truck. Thought I had it all figured out but it ran away on me again.

Truck is currently in spring lake, but I'll be having it towed somewhere.

I'm thinking it is something in the fuel system. I can downshift and it will pop it loose, but it is beyond me.

I know it needs injectors too.

When I looked into the pump nothing really seemed out of place... but it could be governor springs or the rack?

Too frustrated this morning. I'll get a hold of frdboy, but I don't think he has the tools to fix a p7100, which I'm pretty Damn sure is the culprit.

I felt defeated for a long time this morning. I'm getting more confidence as the day goes on. I think I might try this again, but tear down more.

I'm almost positive it is something in the fuel system, I'll put it in the garage and tear it all down and get the tools to do everything, except maybe send the p7100 out, and buy new injectors and stuff and things lol
