I don't know the 7.3 as well as I thought I did after learning about my 6.0. My 7.3 never broke so I didn't have to. I have no idea whats up with that one. I wish I had more to say that would actually help. Let me know how it goes guys.....

If you get stuck somewhere and need a pull/tow let me know dude. I'll try to help

Thanks guys! No luck yet. It completely wouldn't turn over yesterday, so I let it sit in a parking lot last night, went to crank it this morning, batteries were dead. So, I took them to Advanced to have tests run on them and charge them, they are still under warranty, they are supposed to be 750 cold cranking amps, one was 450CCA and the other was 240CCA. So I left them, went back and one was 350CCA after 6 or 7 hours of charging, so I'm guessing the batteries are bad as well. So, perhaps the batteries and/or charging system is at fault for the issue. I'm not sure, if that isn't the problem, I'm having it towed to a diesel mechanic tomorrow. I'd like to have to combed front to back anyway by a professional just to give me their input. Oh well! I'll keep you updated! Thanks for everything guys! I am going to enjoy being here! Talk to Bill(CainInTN) for about an hour last night, and it was a good time just BSing with a local guy, I can't wait till the next meet and to meet everyone!

I wanted to know on mine shortly after I got it up and going. So, I dropped it off to a guy and he went through the whole thing. He ended up replacing a couple of injectors and putting in a set of glow plugs. He also gave me a ton of info on the truck that I used later when the little nuisance items (CPS, relays) started acting up.

New batteries are a must in these trucks. I was running the 1000cca batteries from Sam's. They would spin it like a small block.
