Your not sounding stupid at all. Read this, it is at the lower part of the page. http://www.mwfi.com/vp44.htm

From that page...

The retrieval of codes does not constitute an engine diagnosis. However, there are some codes that usually indicate a defective injection pump. A current P1688 always means that the pump is bad, there is no further diagnosis required. Code P0216 is probably the most common code for VP-44 Pumps. If transfer pump pressure has been checked and is O.K., the injection pump is defective. Other codes that are less common are P0180, P0181, P0215, P0251, P0252, P0253, P0254, P0370, P1287, P1689 and P1690. These codes USUALLY, but not always indicate a defective pump. There are wiring and power checks to be performed if these codes are present. These codes relate to Dodge pickups only, and are not for any other ISB application

Then you can step over to the OBD page and test it out... http://articles.mopar1973man.com/2nd-generation-24v-dodge-cummins/59-obdii-error-codes

Well there is 3 things a VP44 requires to be happy...

[*]Fuel pressure kept above 14 PSI. (Check!)

[*]Fuel filter less than 10 micron (Unknown?) :shrug:

[*]Fuel Lubricity less than 450 HFRR (Unknown?) :shrug:

You got to remember todays fuel (~520 HFRR) doesn't meet Bosch standards for the VP44 or the CP3...

As for filtration diesel standard is usually 10 micron but with tighter tolerances inside both the VP44 and CP3 pumps its best to use a high quality filter that gets down towards 2-3 micron. Better protection from debris.

Whats the micron rating on the stratapore fuel filters? That is what I run oil and fuel.

AH64ID is the filter guru... I know he's got a filter table floating around... But I know the fleetgaurds ar OK filters but there is others that are better...
