Red face kay so I know the cps thing is overdone but

Went to go see my neighbors band tonight, drive there was great stereo blasten and spewin smoke. then went to move my truck to a place that was easier to see, died, fired right back up, got around the block died again wouldn't start, 15 min later fired up after took the air cleaner out, got a half a block away died again, friend showed up went home grabbed a chain got back to the truck got about 2 blocks, so on and so forth my friends burban towed me home, and my d&^% shrank a bit tonight because of it.

Here's everything I tried and It'll still run about 15-30 seconds at a time.
took the air cleaner out, pulled the little yellow water lever made sure that wasn't it. Even took out the fuel filter and it tried to fire. I checked the fuel bowl repeatedly always full,. check engine light never came on.
I let it sit for an hour hood up went out and fired it up ran for a while 2-3 min stuttered and died turned it over and it thought about firing tach moved, turned ignition off tried again and no tach movement

it's a 95 250 7.3 with 116k tranny's been rebuilt once, got rear ended couple months ago which bent my bumper (TOTALLED the civic) that wouldn't be it would it

so on to my question would that be the cps, can I get a decent one from schucks?

Oh yea and i missed the friggin show
