Difficult to determine the actual problem as written. Please use the return key at the end of a thought if you can't remember the period.

That said, have you checked the volume the fuel pump delivers? If the filter is plugged, you can get normal pressure, BUT, you may not get enough fuel to run over idle speed. The engine would stumble and threaten to stall if the fuel flow was restricted.
Please state in one sentence what the engine is doing now. Thanks

Yea that was a tough one to follow. I agree though, definitely sounds like a fuel delivery issue. Fuel filter would be the first place to start.

(Not sure about this next bit): i have not cam sensor so that is out of the way,

Once I got it together, it ran perfect for the month stated. Now I've replaced the crank sensor again, and it still misses and will not rev up. Here is what I've done:
Compressions is 140
No EGR (never had one)
No cam sensor
Replaced TPS sensor
Replaced mass air flow sensor
Replaced plugs, coil, and wires
Ran engine on scanner, all shows to be working (even o2 sensor)

I have even done an ohms test on the wiring harness from sensors to the computer and all is good. I tried another computer that I know to be good. I've also checked fuel pressure - it's 40 running and 44 with the regulator unplugged. I've even checked grounds.

Does anybody have any clue what might be wrong? Please chime in, I'm at a loss. Thanks, and have a great day.
OP - Consider how much easier that is to read than your original post.

If it ran great for a month and then started misfiring I would also suspect the gasoline you got the last time you filled up.

All gasoline has water in it, but just a little, "bad gas" is when it has too much water in it.

Water and gasoline can't mix, and water is heavier than gasoline so it will settle to the bottom of the gas tank when truck is parked.
Fuel pump picks up from the bottom of the tank...................so gets mostly water and engine runs poorly.

Ethanol does mix with water, and can help get rid of it since the ethanol can be burned in the engine while attached to some water.
You can buy HEET or Octane Boost, which is ethanol in a can, pour it into the gas tank if you think is possible you have some "bad gas" in there.

You can also pump some gasoline out of the tank and put it in a clear glass container and let it sit for a few hours, the water will settle at the bottom of the container, so you can see how much water is in your tank

the truck ran great for about 30 days , parked it on Saturday night then Tuesday evening is when all the trouble began.The fuel pump has been in it for 11 months, its a Delphi brand, I know Delphi makes real good diesel pumps.
