Hello,

There is a fuel inertia switch that should be on firewall in front of brake and gas pedals.

It is black and has a little pop-up button that needs to pushed back down if tripped.

 

The engine in a 460 Ford.

 

 

The fuel system problem sounds more like a bad fuel pump/sender combo in tank.
