    UPDATE: Wanted to let everyone know since replacing the ECU I haven't had any issues yet. Hopefully that's what fixed it. Wanted to say thanks to everyone for the help, and if It happens again I'll have a good idea about where to start looking. Thanks again.

    Sorry I haven't replied in a couple days. I changed the ECM last night and have been driving for most of the day, without a hitch....so far. Being carefully optimistic. Sweet video.

    Could it possibly be part of the ICM?

    No, worries. But the only issue with current logic is that I believe this truck was built before crank sensors were used in anything bigger than an S10. I could be wrong though.

    does it mean anything when I disconnect the oil pressure switch, run a jumper wire across, start the car, disconnect the jumper wire and the car continues to run?

    Yes, it's the TBI system. I will check the ECU as soon as I can today. It is the newer style HEI were the coil is mounted separately from tthe distributor

    I have been able to remove the Ignition control module, ignition coil, ignition switch, fuel pump, and fuel filter as possible culprits.

    Unfortunately the guy that tested it for me the other day has called in both yesterday and today and the only reason I haven't done a FP test at home is that I don't have the gauge for it and buying or even renting one at this time is not financially doable.

    Tried this test just now. No premature dieing.

    Well I tried the jump test you recommended and when it died the pump was still running.

    I will definitely be trying that today.

    I didn't think to ask him that yesterday. If he's there today I will find out. Is the oil pressure switch in the same place as the old oil pressure sensor, next to the distributor? I don't know if it a step up because some times it would do that before.

    By what he had told me, it held pressure until the motor died. He said it did the same thing. It died like the key had been turned off. And as far as "reliably" dieing, it made it all the way home (roughly 5 miles) with out dieing until I was getting ready to pull into the garage, when it died 3...

    Randomly dies

    I was able to talk a maintenance guy at work to do a FP check since he just happened to be doing one on a fork lift and he said it held between 10-12 psi all the way up until the motor died. He tested it 3 times with the same result. I then was able the do a jumper test with the obd1 and by the...
