Unhappy 1995 RAM starts then dies.

My son brought his 1995 sick pick up home to dad. The truck has a 360, automatic transmission and is stock except for cat back duals. The truck would not start at all. I replaced the camshaft position sensor and the truck started. At this time the truck will start, run about 5 minutes then shut down. I have now replaced the crankshaft position sensor and coil also. The fuel pump shows 42 PSI of pressure while running and 38 PSI with the key in the run position. Put a timing light on the #1 cylinder and watched the light. Just before the truck dies the light will start going erratic as the engine starts missing. There are no engine codes in the memory. The PCM has no numbers on it, all stickers are missing. Will any 1995 V8, automatic control module work or are they specific to the vehicle. I tried another PCM from a junk yard that was a 1995 V8 Auto with the same results.
Thanks,
Glen

Question RAM starts then dies

The truck will start back up after it dies but run a shorter time each time. Since original post have pulled all grounds, cleaned them and put back on. I also replaced the Auto Shut Down Relay, just in case it was failing after warming up. Used electronics cleaner on the plug to the PCM and also sprayed an electronics lubricant/protector on the plug to get better contact. The PCM from the salvage yard acts a little different so may go hunt another as I believe that I need the one specific to a 360.

I bought one for my 96 had to give them the vin number so it could be programmed for that truck, so don't know about pulling one from the junkyard.

Sounds like a dying fuel pump to me.
