Re: high idle mod
I don't think its gonna work on the 7.3 (a separate Auxilliary Idle Controller was used on the 7.3 and I've never seen anyone wire a "single-wire" solution like this). You can build your own Idle Control for relatively cheap. It won't be rock-steady when the truck is cold and warming up (RPMs will increase as the friction losses decrease during warmup), but once it's warmed up idle will be fairly steady. I have a crude diagram and writeup for the one I have been using since 2001 or so. PM me your email address if you want me to send it to you. Cheers!
Added in edit: The mod described may work on 1997 (and later 7.3's). The 1997 EVTM does show wire 323 (Power Take-Off Feed, Light Blue with Yellow trace wire) on PCM
connector pin 10. My 1996 and earlier EVTMs do not show it. Cheers again!
