I usually lurk and glean information no matter what forum, but I feel that there may be a way for me to save time that would otherwise be consumed looking at several feet of schematics taped together with a pile of colored pencils....
With that being said don't try to talk me out of it its already mounted to the frame.
97 f250 ext cab 7.3 auto rolled.....350$ junkyard 2000 v10 crewcab SD
body complete with pcm
and body and engine harnesses.
Basically to search for this problem would be a combination of does this harness/cluster/pcm/blah blah blah work together, so I'm tackling it in one thread hopefully, let me know if I missed a post with good info.
I'm trying to come up with a combination that will leave me with as many SD
components on the body as possible IE A/C and headlights are controlled by relays and gem rather than high current switches...the steering column is the same and ign switch hooks up the same and the pcm
connector matches as does the engine harness connector but from what I understand the pinout for the eng connector is different. Probably due to the injector driver module, no coils etc. It's no biggie to use the engine harness, but when it comes time to connect the body harness there are three connectors instead of one...
Basically what I'm hoping to do is hook up every thing from the obs
harness minus non essentials in the interior and then control the v10 pcm
or maybe just relays to work the interior. Does anybody have any insight on this? I guess the obvious suggestion would be to get an early 7.3 harness complete and use that, but I'm on super low budget and trying to get this thing out of my yard!!! Oh sorry for the long post and thank you in advance
