Fuse 43? spedo, fuel pedal, o/d switch, etc...
My 02 350 7.3 had a similar prob.
Fuse was popping. #43 i think. It controlled the spedo/tach instrument cluster, o/d switch, fuel pedal, and somethin else. It was a wire in steering column. Worn insulation on top[ of gear shift. kept shorting out fuse. If different wires are grounding out for you, it may effect shifting and other crud. 3 screws, under steering wheel and the lock cylinder out. dark grey wire wrap with 4-5 wires inside. running above the gearshift housing/enclosure. 1 piece of tape solved all my weeks of grief and 79 blown fuses on the floor.
It'll get better. always does.
