Re: New to me 97 F350 CCLB
Most basic stuff you can specify a 96 F350 Powerstroke. One note for you: You probably have a California model 1997. If you do, you will have some different things than the 49-state trucks:
Splitshot injectors (which flow a bit more fuel than the 49-state trucks' single shots)
Shunt on the Glowplug Relay and associated Glowplug monitoring circuits
Fuel Pressure Pulse Damper on top of the mechanical fuel pump in the valley. The banjo fitting/fuel line assembly is different to accommodate the damper.
A DPC-312 PCM
(for an automatic) or a DPC-311 PCM
(for a 5-speed). These PCMs are difficult to find so be aware of that. The 49-state truck would use a more common DPC-202 (auto) or DPC-203 (manual). The DPC-312/311 are wired completely differently due to the addition of the glowplug monitoring circuits, so you can't use a DPC-202/203 without doing some harness modifications and programming it with some late 1996 splitshot programming. Of course, the programming for the splitshots is different than for single shots.
Nice find and good luck with it. Cheers!
