Could some diesel fuel sludge have clogged up on one (or more) of your injectors?
Sounds like the original fuel tank was in bad, bad shape.
By all means check the pumps and any screens first as mentioned by others. If the fuel pump and lines are not the issue then the next step is to check inside the engine.
