Exclamation 1995 7.3 Liter Just wont start

Hi,
The truck would stall once in awhile and also skip a beat now and then when setting still. I changed the fuel filter, and while it was down I replaced the O rings in the filter housing drain valve.( IT WAS LEAKING ) I have so far changed the fuel lift pump, changed the cam shaft sensor, replaced all fuel lines under the hood, NO Black smoke when trying to start..Maybe the IDM is bad.. Any Ideas..This is about to kick my back side...

Where did you buy the CPS sensor? If you bought anything other than the OEM part from ford it may not run. I had a similar problem on my 97 7.3. I had the CPS replaced and the truck runs perfect now.

As others say it may be the cam sensor - I have changed mine at least 3 times that I can remember & Ford has paid for all of them.
