Question about 1985 Ford F150
Check your regulator or check out the wiring to the alternator, it could be a connector coming loose or some other problem like a ground. You should also check out all of your motor's ground's and clean them up! I have the same style pickup same motor but mine is a ext. cab. My engine just went out and i bought a 302 and I had the same problem that you have but it's fixed now! I hope I helped you! my email is email@example.com Thanks

The starter is probably getting weak and needs to be overhauled or replaced. When it's worn enough it won't turn over a warm engine. Maybe get it checked to be sure but a test will likely show it drawing more power than it should. Engine temperature woulden't affect the battery. Hope this helps.

The intake on your 86 allows exhaust gases to recirculate through the intake for cold weather start ups, you might want to check if the valve is stuck open. Whats happening is it's causing your fuel to boil and causing vapor lock. If you engine is running hot check the pressure cap on the radiator look inside the radiator for debris when it's cool. If those two items check good move on to the thermostat and then water pump.
