Random question... I'm looking at a 96 F250, and it turns out Ford has a downloadable owners manual for this model year (oldest they go), and although there is some mention of the 7.3, the tow rating/GCWR tables don't list the 7.3. Is there a supplemental manual for diesels that has this information?
Thanks for the link... no diesel supplement there (thanks Fordpride for the offer, you have PM), however the 1997 manual does have the GCWR info for diesels, I assume there's no difference between 96 and 97 from a GCWR and Towing point of view?
I'm also a little baffled by the information therein.. It looks like for a given powertrain (engine, trans, axle ratio, and 4x4 or not) the GCWR AND tow rating are the same regardless of body. Since tow rating should be GCWR-truck weight, how can a crew cab dually have the same "tow rating" as a regular cab SRW if the CWR is the same?
