Check the fuel cut off solenoid on the injector pump. It could also be a failing injector pump.

When it wont start pour some cool water, NOT ICE COLD water on the injection pump to cool it down. IF it starts, it's time for a injection pump rebuild.

Rebuilds are about all you'll find, new pumps are not made any more. I've heard good things from Hectorwithinjectors on Ebay or Taylor Diesel Group shop.dieselpage.com

just wanted to take a minute to thank you guys for all your help. it was indeed the injector pump still pouring coldwater over it when it gets hot until i get my new (rebuilt) pump in. that water trick has saved my life. i know it's not technically a powerstroke but i still love my old workhorse.
