Help!! Cummins won't start

I have a 1990 Dodge W250 4x4 with 200,000 miles. Recently I have had a few instances where she wouldn't start right away, it would just crank &amp; crank until it would finally start. Then two weeks ago driving down the freeway @80 mph it died but restarted while I was still rolling. Then, this past friday on my way to work it did the same thing on the freeway, it died but this time she never restarted. I had her towed to the house and now I am without my truck.<br><br>So far I have checked and replaced the lift pump, fuel filter &amp; fuel lines. <br><br>What else can I check and or replace before I have to take her to the shop?

JetPilot:<br>Before you do anything drastic, check the shut-off wire (run wire?) at the rear of the pump. They had a habit of vibrating off in embarrassing situations. I remember once....<br>george

Yeah. Check the fuel shut off solenoid. Could have lost it's connection and shut off on you or could be bad. Actually, If you replaced the lift pump... about the only thing left that it could be as long as the pump is in working order is the shutdown solenoid.
