Help with 97 f350 idm swap....
ok heres my question, I have a 1997 F-350 7.3L Powerstroke turbo diesel and recently it shut off and would only turn over but not actually crank. I had it tested and the problem came in the form of liquid and corrosion in the IDM so I started looking around for one at a somewhat decent price and the company i ended up getting an idm from demanded my VIN yr model and actual mileage to ensure they got the correct unit to me. Also they wanted the part number off the existing idm and i gave them everything they asked for.
This is the actual info from the idm which is bad
and this is the one they sent me
Will the replacement unit work on my truck as i found that the numbers on the repl.unit are from a 94-e-250 van and my truck is a f350 psd?
the place i got from said it was only a voltage drop that i would never notice and that it would work. Im 2hrs from my truck and i want this to be a 1 trip fix. I dont want to try it as they suggested bc if it doesnt work or if it may cause issues later on then i would rather exchange it and just wait. I have made to many trips for nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
