won't start after running

87 ford bronco-302-efi. we had a problem of it not starting one day. it just cranked. we went to test it and the switch on the column got stuck and the engine kept cranking after we pulled the key out.... we put in a new starter, starter solenoid, ignition starter switch. tested it- no spark. new ignition module. started. so we then did a tune up-cap, rotor, plugs, wires. now when the truck is driven anywhere and shut off it will not start. needs to sit for a few hours. we installed a new fuel filter and coil-didn't help. fuel pressure is at 40 psi while cranking. book says 35 to 40. i installed an inline spark tester- the light lights up but not bright at all- not sure how bright it's supposed to be. any ideas out there? it's in my driveway and theres nothing worse then a ford in a chevy guys driveway.
