    Thanks for the reps Rich. My 6.0l has been making that noise for a while and I suspected carrier bearing since I had a little slack in it. That video is actually done by Sr Master Tech from youtube. I was so happy when he posted that.

    Hey Rich,
    I hope you are still entertaing questions about the 7.3 IDM 140 volt mod. My 1999 truck has an IDM 110 volt. I want to convert it so it is essentially an IDM 120 volt. I was advised to go with the 120 by my tuner. I am not looking for any performance gains, only efficiency and longevity, much like running an electric motor at 220 volts rather than 110 volts. Buying a used IDM 120 from E-bay or Craigslist is a gamble and I'm not too confident about the remanufactured ones. Do you have enough electronics knowledge to know what size resistor is needed to get what I want or do you know someone who would know? Thanks! Brian D.

    Hi Richdawg,

    Q: should the resistor when modified measur the size replaced with or will these be reduce by the other component in the circuit.

    I had replaced the old chip with a in series to achieve 75kohm but measures about 40kohm when installed. Engines cranks but does not start

    I have tried spraying starting fluid into the air intake and it show that it wants to but I have to keep switching on constantly.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Richdaw,

    I saw your post after searching for a possible repair for a IDM-100. I have a F350 1997 7.3 ps dually which cranks but does not want to start. I have had a diagnose and which said that the IDM has failed.

    Today I have measured the chip resistor you were refering to in your post on increasing volt for the idm. I have noticed that the resistor is measuring 37.8Kohm. It should be measuring about 60.4kohm right?

    If I replace this chip for the one you have posted I am asking my self and you at the moment what are the chances that it will start again?

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Kindest Regards and warm greetings from Aruba Dutch Caribbean.

    I really like mine, and would like to get oil temp and water temp. I think there is room to install another just below the egt gauge, and the other may fit where the removable trim is below, with a little modification to the trim for fit. Do you have a boost gauge and if so where did you mount yours? I really don't like the pillar mounts. Glad to hear its accurate.
