Apparently (heard this, not sure if it's true) in the 6.0L you hook up one wire to a switch and then you have a high idle. Is it that easy for the 7.3?

I expiramented a bit with mine, only way it would work is with a on/off switch, and a potientometer with a resistor wired inline.

Those Contura switches I was talking about...that's what I'd like to wire it to. Could it work with that, blue oval?

This is the one I got: ACT124 Idle Speed pictures from cars photos on webshots
