97 7.3 electrical gremlins.....PLEASE HELP!

Hey ya'll. New to this forum and in desperate need of some help. My 97 7.3 has developed some electrical gremlins. When the key is turned on if the wait to start light comes on the truck will fire and run great....if not you can crank and crank and no smoke or fire. However when the truck does start it'll run for anywhere from 30sec to 30 minutes then just shuts itself off. I've changed engine oil and filter, fuel filter, cam sensor, starter, alternator, all the relays and fuses, and the IDM....and it still does the same thing. Was hoping someone has had a similar problem or someone could point me in right direction. Thank you much and look forward to hearing from some of you guys on this issue
