Stupid question, need help PLEASE!

Ok, I have a 1995 FORD F-350, 7.3L POWERSTROKE DIESLE, automatic with a 290-k miles. The truck runs good, but will idle a little rough on first start up. Was told that the "injector pump" was bad! Another said possible bad injectors.......

Will somebody please explain this to me? I did not know the Powerstrokes had injector pumps.

Also if I was to run a buzz/contribution test would this confirm a bad injector?

You are right and do not have an injector pump. If you run a buzz/contribution test it will confirm a bad injector. I have 2 bad injectors on mine and it still runs fine. If it only acts up on cold start up, you might want to check your glow plugs and relay.
