My info says for 7.5L
federal emissions has a map sensor, no maf.
California emissions has a maf sensor, no map.
Some fords if you suspect maf sensor problem, everything off, unplug it, then start the vehicle take it for a drive. If it runs better check for a problem with the maf system. sensor--wiring circuits--computer, whatever.
Are there any applicable trouble codes? How long since a tune-up?

The exhaust back pressure relief Sensor is taking out the idle computer ?????? A wiring diagram isn't going to help , you need a diagnostic flow chart or as ford calls it , pinpoint tests for that DTC . Your best bet , take your vehicle to a qualified diesel tech .

With no leaks and a little braking action returning by pumping the pedal I would suggest looking into a master cylinder. Low brake fluid level in the master cylinder will cause the brake warning light to illuminate (possibly, also the ABS light).

If the truck has the 7.3L diesel, it will have a vacuum pump which supplies vacuum for all vacuum accessories. I believe if the vacuum level drops below 10 in. of Hg, the brake light will illuminate. If the vacuum pump fails you'll know it as the brake pedal will require quite a bit of effort to effect any braking effort.

There should be one filter per tank. If there is start with changing the fuel filter in the front tank and if you are still having problems then your front fuel pump seems like it may be going out.

You still have air in the lines, start from the farthest rear wheel and do the bleed down again, a mighty vac vacuum pump would help a lot !

that sounds about right to me, and if you run that fuel with ethanol in it that does not help either

No temp condition given; however, long cranking not best starting practice. Better short crank, pause half minute, crank again. Do not prime or pump before, during, or after pump but let computer control the run. Pedal use interferes with computer control of run start.

you can get a set of gaskets through dorman they cost about 110 dollars the driver side is a little harder there is a vent on that side leave it on the cover if you take it off the little rubber gasket will leak also disconnect your batteries because the wires for your glow plugs and injectors are molded into the valve cover gaskets there is a video on you tube just type in your truck and change valve cover gaskets
