For the last few months, I use my truck every day, but some times on sat. And sun. It will not be used, on Monday it wouldn't start until I sprayed carb cleaner in air box, fuel pump was 45 psi, turn key on off on a few times pressure will come up truck starts.

Starts on carb cleaner, 45 psi fuel pump, so I replaced fuel reg. Still not starting, but if I turn key on off on off a few times and build up pressure it will start, so I replaced fuel pump 2 weeks ago, everything worked good until it rained then I went to leave work no start, had weak spark so next day at lunch still no start, I replaced cap and rotor, started up ran good until today {2 days} no start, I left key on and climbed up under hood I could hear a faint clicking coming from plenum were wires go in, I taped on it with my ring it stopped I got out from under hood reached threw window cranked over a half turn and started, drove it around block, shut off started a few times, you got any ideas of what I should try next? Could it be plugged up injectors? But when it is running it has great power.

Check the fuel pressure when the problem is occurring.
