1997 Powerstroke wont start

i have a 1997 f-250 i was driving down the road when all of a sudden the truck started idleing rough and died. the truck wouldnt start back up so we towed it home and replaced the fuel filter and the truck started and ran fine for about twenty minutes brought the truck home and parked it got in it the next morning drove it about ten miles and it did the same thing started idleing real rough and died. towed it home again and couldnt get it to start for anything. replaced the cam position sensor and still nothing checked the lift pump and it wasnt pumping so i replaced it and it still wouldnt start now i can pull start it and it will start and run like a champ for a couple minutes then start idleing rough and die and wont start back up any ideas or help would be deeply appreciated

Two things to check..

1. Your IPR harness for damage

2. Your regulator return screen

Do you have fuel pressure at the schrader valve? 40 PSI when cranking?
