Do you have to let it sit for a while before it will restart?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No , it will restart immediatly and do that all day long. I have replaced both the in tank pumps and pick up screens,the fuel tank switching valve, the high pressure pump, cam position sensor, crank angle sensor, Valve cover gaskets (harness), fuel filter, injector controller, borrowed from a runing truck, checked fuel supply lines numerous times, (Have A reccuring fuel leak at the mechanical pump) The fuel filter is always full of fuel every time I unscrew the cap. I know I am staring this problem in the face but cannot see it. My backround . I was a design and test engineer for FORD TRUCK lots of years ago. The first video on you tube is described as starts, and runs for a few seconds, misses and dies, same problem I have but has no answer an is looking for help as well. Mike HELP ME! Please.

I watched the video you mentioned, it sounds like it is electrical, check the wires to the IPR regulator, I have seen the wire break inside the covering and when it warms up the insulation relaxes enough to allow the wires to break contact.
