odd problem.

i just got my 97 f-350's 7.3 started yesterday and the second time i started it i would barely turn, yes the batteries are fresh and and have no problem turning over and starting my f250's 7.3 idi . the f350's 7.3 looks like its under a crap load of compression or somthing is stuck.
any suggestions?... other than burn the damn thing in the middle of my yard.

Can you describe some better symptoms? Like is it chugging, smoking, smell fuel, no power when foot on pedal, etc...
Plus a list of any mod's you have would help.

its turning very slowly, wont start , its like it's fighting it's self to turn over.

weak starter mayhaps?

no mods to this one. she's stock.


my other 97 f-350 has twin turbos , reliable as hell, same with my 250.

but this bastard just keeps screwin with me, it must be cursed.

Have you tried jumping it off your other truck? I've replaced the starter in my '99 last fall, it got slower and slower, then nothing.

everything wears out at some point. If it has plenty of juice, and the solinoid is good, then it can only be the starter.
