Light blue is old Ford (F7TZ-12K073-AB), grey is new Ford (F7TZ-12K073-B though this number may have been updated again), black is International (IH# 1876736C91). The part number will be imprinted on it somewhere.

Guess you would know better than I but I really think that the above is correct. The CPS shouldn't be restricted to number of cylinders that a engine has. All it knows is little hole-> little hole-> little hole-> big hole. All it needs to do is fit the hole that it's going into and have the correct connector for the wiring harness. It's would be up to the PCM to know what the signal was meant to mean.


Love your Avatar on the Army by the way

Same here. Don't remember where the thread went but it had scoped data and digital readings all over it. Great read.

I am using the dark blue international one. It does seem to smooth the idle compared to the Ford gray one I was using.
