Intermittent Stall/Hard Restart

'95 F-250 7.3 PSD, ~225k miles, manual trans. I have been experiencing an intermittent stall and accompanying hard start scenario. The problem started about a year or so ago, and would only happen once every two months or so. Always restarted and drove fine after. Today, in the course of about five miles of city traffic, it died twice and nearly refused to start. Spun over fine, sounded as if it was getting no fuel. Occurs in all driving conditions and engine speeds, no codes, and offers no warning as to when it will occur. Runs smooth when running, so I doubt it's injector/harness related. I'm thinking either CPS or Accelerator assy. Please help ASAP as this is my DD.

sounds to me like you may have a cam sensor going out. Most of the time they will stall and die, but restart like nothing is wrong immediately after.
