The voltage regulator is located on the passenger side, front side of shock tower, mounted on fenderwell. Tell me what is happening.

It turns off arter running for about an hour, have a new batery, new soilnoid, new 60 amp alternator, new fuel pump, new fuel filters, used starter but it starts fine, new ignition switch, new fuel relays, new fuses. Truck starts fine runs good after about a hour it just die; s acts like its outa gas then die; s, it has to be one of those outher things by the soilnoid, can you help
