Default 1988 9000s shut off , then an hour later started right up

So i have a 9000s and it was running great. While driving it just shut off. Order a tow got it back to the shop and it started right up. Trying to figure out why it cut off so it doesn't happen again. Im thinking fuel pump relay or possibly the fuel pump? Any ideas?

I would also look into the crank position sensor / hall effect sensor. Depending on the time of year it was constructed it will have a CPS on the front crank pulley area or a sensor built into the distributor. They can be notorious for not working when hot, but after a cool down working fine.
