95 F250 7.3 dies occasionally

I have a 1995 F250 7.3 that will die occasionally while going down the road, or at times while it's sitting at idle. The truck has dual tanks and at the moment I can only use the front tank, because the rear one leaks. After it dies, I can flip the switch from the front to rear then back to front, and it'll restart and go quite awhile (sometimes a week or more) before it reoccurs. It started doing it in late September, and after replacing the lift pump in November it continues to reoccur. I'm relatively new to the Diesel world, so if anyone has an idea of what it may be that's causing the problem just let me know!! I'm wanting to rectify the problem before it gets worse!!

cam sensor is the mostly likely answer..........

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
