Long story, but I bought a 96 7.3 with a 5 speed about two hours ago. Took it for a long test drive, no problems. Bought it, got five miles down the road and it just died. At 60mph the motor just stopped running. When i got to the side of the road, the motor cranked really strong, there's fuel in the bowl and I even tried unhooking the chip. No dice. Luckily, the seller was a stand up guy and came out and gave me my money back. I told him that if he figures out what the problem is I'd still consider buying it.
7.3 with 243k but the motor was completely rebuilt 3000 miles ago. No throttle response when it was cranking with ether. Any idea on what could possibly be wrong with it? I think its something electronic, maybe the ECM or CPS. Thanks guys, any help would be much appreciated.
