Replaced Clutch, Now Power drop while driving and hard cold starts

My clutch went out so a knowledgeable buddy of mine helped me replace it.

The flywheel was tore up too, so replaced the whole clutch set and flywheel. It was a dual mass, the new one is not.

Everything seemed to run great the first night. The next morning, I had the "Wait to Start" light come on while driving and no acceleration, I let off gas and press again and it goes away. It happens so fast, it is hard to tell if there are any other things going on. A few times, it happens a couple times in a row. There have been a couple trips that it has not happened at all, or just once.

It happens in any gear.

Also, it seems to be harder to start cold. It used to start right up. I know have to turn glow plugs on, and off a couple times before trying to crank, and I feel like I have to press accelerator to make sure it stays started.

'94 f350 7.3 powerstroke turbo dually, 5-speed manual


Thanks for any help

UPDATE:

I changed the Camshaft Position Sensor because I found other people who had similar issues. I thought it worked last night, it started right up, and I picked up a pizza with no issues. Then this morning, hard to start, and it started happening right as I hit the street.

Also, I did notice that when it happened, if I kept my foot on the gas it would not reset itself, but as soon as I let off, it would go away, and I could drive again.

Another Update

After letting truck sit for a couple hours while I posted on here and looked for answers, I started her up, and she started right up. I drove to the part store, and hooked a computer up to it. (No issues on the way)

Codes:

DTC 116

DTC 50

DTC 845

The guy helping me insisted on helping, and then got busy, so he ran off right after getting the codes.

116 is a engine temp. It is possible that it was not warm enough yet.

But that raises the question of how long it should take to warm up.


The other 2 codes, I can't find anywhere. Any ideas? I wanted to be a dick and tell the guy I was there first and he should help me, but I just left. I didn't know they are they only shop that has the old style code scanner.

Worse than ever

For the past couple days the truck has ran fine. The first start is hard, but once it warms up, I shut off the engine and start it back up, and drive without issue.

Also, at night I have plugged it in, and it starts right up in the morning, and runs fine. Then after 8 hours of sitting while at work, it is hard to start, but I make sure to let it warm up, then shut it down and starts right up, and no issues.

Today, while it was warming up after work, it shut off. Is started right back up, and I let it warm up more. Then As soon as I went to pull forward, the ol' Wait to Start nonsense started again.

I barely went anywhere and it kept doing it. I would barely go 10 feet and again. I tried to drive home anyway, and I would have spurts that it was fine, and then it would do it again. It only did it a few times on freeway, and when I got off on state route, I ended up traveling on the side of the road because it was hard to maintain the speed limit as it was constantly cutting out.

I didn't want to call AAA again when I was so close to home, so I took it all the way home like this, a couple more miles. I had one more turn, and a curve totaling maybe 1.5 miles and it was fine that distance to the house.

I am not getting any feedback on this issue, any help would be appreciated...
