Have you checked the inertia switch? Fords are known to burn the contacts right at the switch, might be worth a look.

To wire the fuel pump directly you will need to install a wire from the fuse box to the pump. Use a circuit that is only energized when the ignition switch is on. I would be cleaning and checking all the connections as an intermittent problem is almost certainly a bad connection somewhere. The inertia switch is a safety device so I would not eliminate it.
