Cuts off like key is turned off? Or stalls?

See image above, # 3 is the fuel shutoff solenoid, it has to stay open for engine to continue. Check it for voltage when key is on. It has two coils, one for start, and one for run, your run coil is not holding would be my thought. If it has voltage with key on and does not stay retracted when engine starts, the solenoid is bad. You can remove it and start engine, if engine stays running, you know it is solenoid or wiring to it. You will have to slip it back in to kill engine. This is mounted just to the left of the injection pump body.
