Well i have my 1993 w350 in total restoration process and i pulled the injectors in the process when i was doing a new front cover and vacum gasket kit. Now i put the injectors back in and the truck wont start like it use to. It turns over forever and i pump the pedal and eventualy it comes back to life. Now once i run it for a bit it start right up. Then i let it sit for a while and it does it again. What should i start checking!?

Did you bleed the fuel lines? Sounds like air in the fuel system. Start with fuel filter open bleeder and pump lever on lift pump to see if air comes out of bleeder. Next crack open nuts on injector lines and crank engine over until you see fuel comming from under all the nuts. Tighten nuts up and start.

Mine did this before and it ended up being the fuel pump.
