Aftermarket fuel pump or Ford? The first time I replaced my fuel pump I had a similar problem. Turns out the new aftermarket pump I had put in would "overheat" in hot weather and shut down.

1) pull codes: sometimes there will be information stored in CM that will help with a stalling problem like this

A good code list is a useful thing. My code list says 31 and 84 are both for EGR components. If the EGR system has indeed been removed, that is the likely cause for both of these codes.

Does your '88 have one fuel pump (a single high pressure pump in the tank), or does it have dual fuel pumps (a low pressure "lift" pump in the tank and a high pressure pump in line)? '88 was about...

I'd probably next put a fuel pressure gauge on it and see if fuel delivery is working right when it stalls/won't start.
