Is my truck rare?

Hey guys, I picked up a 1994 single cab f250 about a month ago. The manufacture date is 3/94 and it IS a 7.3 direct injection powerstroke with a zf5 speed tranny. Has 4.10 gears and air shock on the back and a air valve to pump them up right below the side of the driver side seat. I always thought ford didn't start putting powerstrokes in f250s untill 6/94? My truck also has a obd1 plug under the hood and a obd2 plug under the dash. I tried the jumper wire test on the obd1 plug under the hood but it didn't work?? I'm having a time trying to figure out if it's been flashed for obd2. And it just did hit 147k miles.

i believe the PSD appeared in 3/94. all the 94 PSD had speeds. they had both th eplug under the hood and the OBD II port under the dash, though they are facing a different direction. you can get the PCM flashed DP offers it, and your dealer will do it as well.

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)

It just has me stumped on the obd1 plug not working. I looked on the internet where to place the jumper wire, and I even looked in a Haynes repair manual and it said the same. The check engine light still didn't flash. The light is not on but it should have still flashed a system pass code. I looked for a obd2 flash sticker under the hood, but couldn't find one. A sticker could peel off easily though. The only reason why I'd like to find out, is so I can buy a edge evolution programmer. That way I don't have to buy and install a egt gauge.

Yea it works because it comes on for about a second when I turn the key on. All the fuses are good to. I went to advance auto today and hooked it up to a scanner for gasser vehicles and it would hit and miss on communicating with the vehicle. I'd like to know 100% sure if it's obd2 before I dump $450 in a programmer.

You still would need an egt gauge to monitor that, ford didn't put one in from the factory, and easiest way to tell if your obd2 works is hook something that reads a psd to it

Btw edge is junk compared to custom tuning

If there was even hit and miss communication, that means the interior port is active. So an AE, Interceptor, MT2500, etc. should communicate with it. Generic OBD-II scanner will read speed and RPM but that's about it; no codes.
