Sweet. Check out forscan for your laptop. It will do all the tests you want. If your computer is blue tooth enabled you can use that same adaptor.

I don't think the ipad works.

Maybe start checking craigslist for a cheap laptop.

here are some of my builds just so you guys can get an idea of my experience level (been building Fords, off road toys for 20+ years)
I specialize in drivetrain conversions, suspension fabrication, custom interiors, etc
My daily driven 1988 Bronco II is OBD2, 302/4r70w/1354m it thinks it is a 98 Mountaineer with a CA emissions legal conversion.

Re: New to me 1997 F350 7.3 4 door long bed 5 speed 4x4 - Let the buildup begin! HELP!!

onto the good stuff:

Riff raff intake boot installed (factory orange boot ripped)
Rad support welded both sides, new header panel and lights (factory broken)
AFE air filter toast, new replacement on its way

Check out the tensioner pulley and idler pulley!
Notice the pulley on tensioner is HITTING the allen head mount bolt??? Thinking the bolt for the idler and tensioner are reversed???

Trying to find a Zf5 7.3 inspection cover??? Anyone know where to find one

Will start a thread on our new Excursion ASAP!!

Upon further review:

needs waterpump BAD (rockauto) 1/2" play!!! Whoa
Cowl is loose as a goose (OBS thing?)
Pass front door is FUBAR (junkyard)
Coolant gauge INOP (Use explorer parts I have lots of explorer parts to fix)
One cab marker light is out (Amazon, LED)
Mirrors are aftermarket (junkyard)
Tensioner is loose, needs replace (rockauto)
drv rear brake locks up at touch of pedal (new brakes)
E brake cable/pedal INOP (tear down)
Windshield cracked (new)
drv door panel broken (JY)
Duct tape shifter HAS TO GO
Clutch pedal cover (new)
Needs ac condenser (JY)
Needs ZF5 inspection cover (may fabricate from 460 scatter shield I have?)
Front door pins both sides, possible hinges





Already a money hole, that's okay I expected it....... (Rockauto loves me)

LED bulbs fitted into parking and turn lamps
Looking into LED cube retrofit since I know these cheap black headlights will leak and not throw any light down the road with halogen bulbs


Should take a bit to get her road worthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My theory is:
Assuming my injector O ring re seal I did is holding, the leaking turbo = crankcase oil in exhaust = White smoke at start/running and loss of crankcase oil

Am I on the right path??
