Does anyone know if the 7.3 dual mass flywheel can be "locked out"?

There is info on the subject for the IDI (Lucky Mod) but I cannot find anything for the 7.3 Power Stroke. I have a stock 1996 F250 5 spd. It has 245,000 miles on it and I only drive it about 2000 miles per year to haul firewood and hunt. The IDI info is at Anyone locked out a dual mass flywheel before? - TheDieselGarage.com. Thanks!

They are drilling holes and using bolts. Don't know if that's any better, but if it has worked in the pastwith a 6.9 I don't think this would be any different

what they are doing though is reusing the flywheel and replacing the clutch to one with springs on the actual clutch disk, you cannot reuse the dmf clutch or you will grenade your tranny. Might as well replace the flywheel for a few hundred bucks more and do it right in my own opinion
