From 6.4 to 7.3

Howdy,

I sold my tuned, deleted 6.4 several weeks ago. I thought I could go without a Powerstroke.........2 Months later, I picked up this 97. I am very happy so far with the 7.3 platform.

BTW, I attached a picture of the Bronco I am selling. I thought that I could drive the Bronco in place of a F250. Talk about feeling neutered! Anyway, this is the best forum for Powerstrokes, and I am happy to be back in a truck!

OBS 7.3 Fords are the best trucks on the road. There are still many 80-97 OBS Fords on the road here in NJ.

Thanks. I am still figuring out the 7.3, put a new EBP sensor and tube yesterday. Helped smooth out the idle a bit.

The 7.3 psd's are much simpler than the newer powerstrokes.
