I’m looking at buying a 7.3 that needs some attention off of my buddy. It’s been sitting in his field for quite some time. I belive it is an 01 F-350 automatic. It’s all rusted up but I just want a beater truck to play with. Currently it does not run as there is no pcm in it. Someone must have supposedly taken it for another truck. My question is what can I do to get the correct pcm as the old one is not there and I have no idea what pcm code it’s supposed to take. Just looking to hear the truck run or crank before I do buy it. Thanks.

Should be able to get a 2001 PCM used or rebuilt

We break the 7.3 down into 4 generations:

First is the 1994.5-1997 F-Series trucks and 1994.5-1996 E-Series vans, which use a DPC-20x PCM.


Second is 1997 California F-Series and 1997 Vans, which use a DPC-31x PCM. Everything from 1994 through 1997 got a ZF 5-Speed manual transmission or an E4OD automatic transmission.


Third is the Early-99 F-Series trucks and Vans, both Federal/49-State and California Emissions, which use a DPC-40x or 41x PCM. Everything from Early-99 on got a ZF 6-Speed manual transmission or a 4R100 automatic.

Fourth is the Late-99 through early-2003, the end of production of the 7.3 in the US, which use DPC-42x through 49x PCM's.

Although Ford made trucks in 1998, there wasn't really a 1998 model year. In our view, if the truck has the old (square) body style, it's a 1997, and if it has the newer rounded-hood and fenders and an intercooler, it's an Early-99 / Super Duty, regardless of what the build date is.

If the build date is after 12-06-1998, then it is a Late-99 or 2000 model.
