I don't own a 7.3. ...but while I was looking for some information on my 6.0, I ran across an electronic copy of a 7.3 PC/ED. I didn't even know that there was a 7.3 PC/ED.

Previously I have posted copies of the 6.0L and 6.4L PC/EDs. That's because PC/EDs are the best. For those unfamiliar with them, I have described them like this:

...

You know that one time when your brother was really drunk and he told you A) there is a Brake Pressure Applied switch on your 6.0 and B) how to effectively troubleshoot it? That came from the PC/ED.

Remember that other time when your great uncle - on his death bed - told you how to do a KAM reset? That also... well... you get the idea.

...

Here is a qualification statement with regard to this post:
  • I believe that this document to be out of print and able to be posted without issue. If you are overly squeamish in a copyright sense, do not so much as cast your eyes in the direction of these documents.
  • The PC/ED is for the MY1998-99. Use your brain if your 7.3 is not a MY1998-99. In fact, use your brain, regardless.

Here is the full document list:

1998-99 PCED 73 Section 0 - Introduction - 1 of 1.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 1 - Description and Operation - 1 of 1.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 2 - Diagnostic Methods - 1 of 1.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 3 - Symptom Charts - 1 of 1.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 4 - Diagnostic Subroutines - 1 of 4.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 4 - Diagnostic Subroutines - 2 of 4.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 4 - Diagnostic Subroutines - 3 of 4.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 4 - Diagnostic Subroutines - 4 of 4.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 5 - Pinpoint Tests - 1 of 5.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 5 - Pinpoint Tests - 2 of 5.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 5 - Pinpoint Tests - 3 of 5.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 5 - Pinpoint Tests - 4 of 5.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 5 - Pinpoint Tests - 5 of 5.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 6 - Reference Values - 1 of 1.pdf
1998-99 PCED 73 Section 7 - Metrics and Index - 1 of 1.pdf

I may have to truncate file names as I am uploading.

Because the forum only allows (5) attachments per post, this will take a few posts to complete. Be patient. ...and - to keep things together - I'd prefer if any posts from others could wait until the last document goes up.

Enjoy!

I thought that I'd bump this. No reason other than it's hardly been viewed. Seems a shame if someone could be helped by it, but nobody knows about it. Hell, I didn't even know it existed until the day I posted it. Lol.

Sticky, maybe?

This should be a sticky. Mods put down the eggnog.

gold mine of information

Thank you for posting this trove of technical information. It is a great help as I transition from working on sports cars to the 7.3 L PSD.

I just noticed while looking for something else that not many people have seen this. Just giving it a bump.

It would get more views in the section relevant to the model years involved. Do you by any chance have the PCEDs for any of the OBS model years?

Well, it kinda is... The PC/ED is dated as 98-99. All of the electrical diagrams are 97. The forums are 94-98 and 99-03. I picked the earlier.

I do not have a PC/ED for the OBS years and have not run across one. I will certainly keep an eye out for it and let you know if I get a hit.

'98 is only referenced here for the vans. I'm guessing this is a truck PCED.

Yeah, if you find one for OBS, that would be awesome. Even the paper ones are hard to find, and when they do show up on eBay, they're $$$$$.

I didn't think that the PC/EDs were very truck or van specific. That said... maybe a mod can do the move to the later forum. ...and make it a sticky to make it easier to locate.

Got it to the OBS PC/EDs. I'll def keep an eye out.

@madpogue... I should have said, "Before *this* one, I didn't think that the PC/EDs were very truck or van specific." I do see that this document very clearly makes that distinction. What I was trying to say is that - based on the other PC/EDs that I have run across, this is the first one making that distinction.

Thanks again!
