Default I think it's the fuel pressure regulator...

I have a 1977 E150 Chateau Club Wagon--it's having trouble getting started (just replaced the starter a week ago, battery +alternator is good). When it is started it takes a little warming up until it's safe to drive--it wants to cut out if I just try to get in and go-this takes quite a bit of revving so it doesn't die. she has some hesitation and also runs rich...my question is: where is the regulator located and what is the replace procedure?

Engines with carburetors don't have a fuel pressure regulator - you have a low pressure mechanical fuel pump. Sounds to me like you need a good tuneup and a rebuilt carb. Ethanol in fuel is rough on carbs.
