Look on the links I gave you.
The code is in LRS forum and instructions are in the AM forum.
Then you can just order what you want online.

I bet, over a year is probably a nerve wrecker.

Just want to run something by you guys. I'm only getting 3psi for fuel pressure at idle. I should be around 6 or 7. I order a new fuel pump. However here is what happens I start it up runs for a bit shuts off.. Start it up again shuts off. On the third startup it runs fine I take off shuts down while driving does that maybe 2 more times also I'm not having issues with restarting it but by the 5th time it's running fine. I also may be experiencing some charging issues. What do you guys think?

Yeah the fuel pressure should be in the 5-8 psi range. Check your fuel bowl levels.
Also, if you change out the needle and seats in the carb (or maybe it already has them?) for the higher pressure versions it may benefit you if your line size is marginal.

When it shuts off is it instant like turning off a key or does it sputter like fuel loss?

It sputters tries to go but then it just shuts off and I'm coasting.

That sounds like a fuel delivery problem.
Like I said check the fuel bowl levels amd you may have a sticking needle and seat issue too.
You used to be able to get clear float bowl level checking screws which made checking the fuel level really easy and quick to do, but I don't know if they are available nowadays or not.

Alright thanks for the help. Also what's the normal temp on. The foxes it's kind of strange that the temp gauge says normal all the way up to the 237 mark.. I have the 140mph cluster

Not sure what you are asking?
I put a 180 degree thermostat in mine and it runs around 190-195 degrees. I put a small thermometer in the thermostat elbow on the intake, because I don't think the factory gauge is very accurate. It runs in between the R & M on the instrument panel gauge.
In my experience Fords run better if they don't get too hot.

So I should probably look into getting an aftermarket temp gauge?

If you want to know what your actual temperature is, I would.
