I know you can click on each image to increase the size but is there a way to make the images even larger? I'd like to print the images to full page size so I can print them for future use. Thanks

This explains a lot to me. You have to resolder the connections is because they use lead free solder. I am a solder technician. When they went away from lead because of health concerns, the solder joints are very fragile and vibration will kill them. All electronics are suffering because of lead free solder. Thanks for the write up.

What years do the 6.0 use the 4-pin FICM, and what years use the 6-pin FICM?

Looking at all those pics brings back fond memories from Sunday Gives me douche chills. I think the 4 pin is later 04 up, but Bismics writeup in the tech folder says the opposite. Easy to find out, just remove the small cover on the FICM and look inside. Mine had 4. BTW still waiting for my truck to be done.

My 2003 spare FICM is a 7 pin, so the 4 pin is the later model! I thought this is what I posted in the thread in the Tech folder, but if not .......... Good catch Tim.

This link goes to Powerstroke but not to the PDF. Is there an updated link?
