Question about Chevrolet 1500
This could be a bad ground on the ECM. When it is in park it is open loop. When you put it in gear, the ecm goes closed loop with the oxygen sensors and with no ground it dies.

Sounds like a vacuam leak, best thing to use is cold start spray, by spraying the vacuam lines with this you will notice a change in the idle wherever the leak is at.

You might want to have a balance test done to make sure that your injectors are working properly.I worked on a blazer before and did the same thing by replacing everything not even giving thought to the fuel spider or the injectors.

Earl! You could have bought a new car! Ah, but you must love this Ford truck, it's obvious from the never- say- die parts list. How long has this project been going on? If you plan on finishing it yourself. here's my thoughts: Invest in a good scan tool (about $150-$200), a good compression tester ($40), a vacuum gauge ($15), a multi-meter (your choice-a useful one starts as low as $20, a digital volt-ohmmeter (multi-meter) designed for auto electronics is desireable), and last, maybe a fuel pressure tester to round out the list (about $40). Maybe you have all or some of these already. They are all good diagnostic tools you will find very helpful in getting to the root of your problem. The place to start is with the scan tool. Look at trouble codes, look at live stream data. Both will help you a lot. Do a compression test. Find out the internal condition of the engine. New parts are good. Now make them work.

Have you "reset" the computer on the car. When parts are replaced, the comp continues to run the vehicle on all the old settings which can drive you nuts because nothing you do will fix a problem. Usually, taking both battery cables off and waiting for 15 minutes will reset the computer. If this does not do it, then ask a dealer how to reset yours.
