1987 Ford F150 Lariat XLT Extended Cab, 8-foot bed, dual gas

Customer Question

1987 Ford F150 Lariat XLT Extended Cab, 8-foot bed, dual gas tanks
302 V8, EFI, A/T, A/C, cruise, PS, PB, PW, PDL – got it all! 80,000 original milesI have multiple problems with fuel supply, just died for 5th time on road.
F (found) O (on the) R (road) D (dead), so they say.
I have had replaced both fuel tank pumps, crossover, high-speed pump on chassis, starter, power steering pump, water pump, oxygen sensor, plenum, cleaned fuel rail and injectors, etc.
After sitting 3 days, it started and ran about 30 seconds and died. Restarted and ran about 10 seconds and died, then nothing.
Can anyone shed any light on this ongoing problem – I am frustrated to the max and don’t do my own work so it’s breaking me. Thought it would be such a great vehicle to own. Drives great when it runs.

Ok, has the shop that is working on it determined what is missing when it wont start - fuel or spark?

No - all the fuel supply has been replaced - 3 fuel pumps, crossover, plenum... Seems it is electrical

The truck is not back at the shop - it's in my yard unable to run.
