truck shutting down

It is a 97 powerstroke with 252,000 miles or so. I thought it was water in the fuel but I'm not so sure anymore. I can crank it up and let it idle far ever, but I get it and drive it around it starts missing, rpm's go down(even when I put it to the floor), and it will shut off. It will take a minute or two to get it back started and then it will run fine for a while. It does it on both tanks, and does it randomly. Any thoughts on what it could be or where to start looking.

There is a shrader valve on the driver side of the fuel bowl, probably with a valve stem cap on it. Make sure you use a gauge that will read at least 100 psi

60-70 psi

I use a fuel pressure test gauge, but if you are in a real bind a tire gauge will work but not recommended
