Default 4.0 running wierd

well i put the transmission back in my 1990 4.0l ohv ranger and took it 4X4 behind my cousins house and it was running great then we go to some woods in front of his house and i was stoped the engine just dies, it doesent sputter at all, just stopped running. so we try to start it back up and it cranks but wont start, so even though we dont think its the problem we go and pour some more gass into the tank and try again, nothing, still cranks but wont start. so we pull it out and then like an hour later i checked one of the spark plugs it looked good i replaced it got in the truck and it started up! so i drove it down back and as i was going around a corner it just died, and again it would crank and not start, before we pulled it out (after like ten minutes) i tried it again and it started so i drove it and parked it up on the drive way and it idled for awhile fine and then just died. i dont know whats wrong it seems to run fine but then its seems wierd that it does not start after it dies, i read a couple of post about guys with bad Crankshaft position sensors would that cause this? thanks, sorry it so long

got the codes of the truck and got that the fuel pump circut is open and that the maf is not getting minimum voltage and canister purge circut is failing as well as the truck is running lean. gonna check out the connections to the fuel pump.
