Newb with a new project
Ok new here, im pretty good with motorcycles and gasoline engines. I have a 96 f250 4x4 5spd. i just got a 96 f350 4x4 auto crew cab not running. it has 143xxx miles. newer hpop,fuel pump, cps, thats all i can remember.The Previous owner said that the fuel heater was shorting out, and shut off. he disconnected it and replaced fuse but still nothing. so i switched the pcm, and idm off my f250 to find nothing, as i was fiddling with my test light my probe hit the ac compressor and lit up, turns out there was a short within the #1 fuse which is the radio, took the radio out, no more short. the horn doesnt work, but the relay gets warm, i fiddled with the horns this guy had hooked up and they start blaring right in my ear. so now i have disconnected the relay to fix that problem later. i did give her some ether, and it did start(i know bad but , now im sure it runs) i have checked some random connections, the f350 vs my running f250 and i havent found anything wrong.
Truck spits out very little smoke hardly any. wts comes on, 20lbs of fuel pressure. the fuel bowl is full, and no air is coming out of shader valve by the fuel bowl. rpm gauge comes up when cranking, batterys are good and turns it fast enough
Lmk where i should check next
