    I seen a picture you posted of some fiberglass running boards for a 1994 F-350 Dually. Do you still have those for sale?

    I thought about buying a used one on ebay, but how can you trust sellers on ebay espec. a good IDM? My IDM is a 120V and opened it up and everything is nice and shiny and clean inside but, I really cant test it. Do you know how other than t-pinning it hooked up to the wiring harness? I wish I could post pics on here but, I don't see an attachment button to do so, so that you can get a good look at what I'm talkin' about. Any suggestions, ideas help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time Rich, tired, wore-out mechanic diane,

    Replaced both dual alternators with new ones, two new Interstate Megatrons batteries, cleaned out the fuel tank and did a hutch mod and deleted the socks in the tank, new fuel pump and getting fuel up to the bowl. How can I do further testing by myself on the IDM and what have I missed? Also, I know the pcm and the idm work together but how can I rule out either one the problem? last question, if there is no way to diagnose the idm by myself, how do I locate a reputable company that I can trust to buy a reasonably priced used or new one? Swamps was recommended by the guys on Fordforum sites online but, how do you trust them that they are telling you yours is bad or not?

    coil on new ipr valve tested 10.7ohms my old one was between 10.2 and 10.6 exactly 10.4ohms. Oil is at full mark level and high press. line are not leaking, icp does not leak. the only code I am reading now after clearing and retesting, over and over is the PO380 glow plug heater Circuit A, I don't need my glow plugs as weather is still warm here in Ohio so, I wouldn't think that this would cause the truck not to start, glow plug relay was first replaced when truck shut down on me 20 miles outside of town, all fuses and relays have been checked and re-check all test good with test light. I am familiar with the #30 heater fuse blowing and the problems with the heater element in the fuel bowl shorting out and arking but, I have neither of those problems either.

    Cleared the codes after purchasing an new IPR valve, replaced that today and tried "buzz" test again and NO 1293/1294 codes any longer?? I'm puzzled? I ohmed wiring harness connector at the valve cover gaskets on top again, everything is ready within range, had both valve covers off 6mos. ago and no burnt, faulty wiring harness and no loose connections. Hpop test passed great pressure (AE Scan Tool) Engine Rpm passed over 100
    only thing that puzzled me is that isn't the new ipr valve on the powerstroke 7.3l suppose to put out 85% (mine only went to 58%) or is that just for the 6.0's?

    Hi Rich
    I found a post where you soldered a resistor for 140 V IDM Mod. I have been a Crank No Start Issue for over a yr. now, 2000 Powerstroke 7.3 F350 Superduty Diesel, dually. Ive been thru the UVHC harness's, new glow plugs, replaced ipr, all maintenance, reg.oil changes, coolant, hutch mod in fuel tank, clean filters, I recently tested IDM-T pinned and all three test came back Passed from the site » TB 103: 1994-03 Ford 7.3L IDM Replacement & Diagnostics However, I hear the diodes, resistors etc, can still go bad and not fire yur fuel injectors, This is my problem cannot fire the fuel injectors, and used AE Ford Bundle Scan Tool, and cannot even get passed the "buzz" test, it fails everytime, and was pulling the codes P1293 P1294.

    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.
