I have replaced the computer, fuel pump on the rail, distributor, and the oil pressure

my brothers was doing screwy things and we finally figured out to be the battery cable, the pos cable had a smaller wire on it that fed the fuel infection circuit. it wouldnt hurt to check the fuel injection relays that are involved, your are going to need schematics of your truck for trouble shooting, i bet if you check the old pump it is ok. good luck
