hi there i have a 1990 diesel ford too.. and it was doing the same thing.. it would start and then it would runn all wierd and stall out. then was hard to start... so what i did was changed out the glow plugs and turned up the pump to max... now i dont even have to plug it in and it starts up great.

i have the same truck 1990 7.3 diesel and i have had some similar problems. i think this guy is right about the heated garage and then adding the diesel 911. but one point i want to make is that it only has one fuel pump and it is on the block. this one funs off of the crank it is called a mechanical fuel pump. if the above dosn't work you may want to replace that.

I have had problem with hot start for a while recently got water in the fuel. while pumping it out  found the hose from fuel line to pump was soft. it is a hose with fiber cover and plastic outside cover  the inter hose had disengaged the outer hose had small crack.  seems to have solved the problems

Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip
