Jam: one possibility is a blocked or partially blocked fuel return line.when it's running rough is it blowing black out the exhaust? Was your pump rebuilt by a reputable diesel shop? I had a suby with a 6.2 that supposedly had a rebuilt pump when I bought it,but 30,000 miles later I had to have it gone through,turned out that the"rebuild"was a quickie,a couple seals and nylon washers.After the good rebuild it ran great and still got 31mpg.Wish I still had that one!Good Luck!

I can see a puff of black smoke come out after it misses, but in the morning, when the engine compartment is cool, it will not miss....only when it gets run a bit, turned off and restarted...then it will miss until it cools off again.
