my 97 powerstroke did the same thing about a year ago. on that circuit there is the altenator, fuel line heater, pcm power relay coil, and the glow plug controller. i unpluged one at a time to till it quit blowin fuses. come to find out the altenator was shorted causing it to blow the fuse. hopefully this will help you

I had the same problem on my 95 7.3. I replaced the cam position sensor which is on the front cover below the alternator. It was any easy relacement and was less than $75.00 to do.

One other simular problem on the 95 7.3. The truck has 280,000 + miles and has had the tranny rebuilt 3 times. About 4 mo. ago my son comlpained that the truck would quit running when he'd come to a stop. We took it to the dealer for a diagnostic. The tech hooked up his equipment and we went for a drive. We got about a 1/2 mi when the truck quit and wouldn't restart. We got it back the shop and couldn't find the problem even with the diag. equipt. connected. One of the other techs said he had heard at one of the Ford train'g sessions that low transmission oil levels will cause the problem. Sure enough the tranny was 3 qt.s low. Once the tranny was topped the truck started right up and hasn't had a problem since.

That would be where I start so you can narrow it down to the problem circuit and go from there
