part time start

I have a 99, 7.3 Will start sometimes and run like new, other times wont even try. Never know when it will start. It started the other morning, drove around couple of hours got back home turned it off went to start about an hour later aint started since. Have changed fuel pump and filter, low pressure oil pump, has new oil & filter. Had starter and batteries checked. Dont know wat else to do. Thanks
