ok, first of all.. I am new to the site and a new PS 7.3 owner.
I am not a mechanic, i know a very little but do have alot of tools that are easy to borrow.

I have a 95 7.3 that i just purchased that has a bad clutch, it has been siting for about 4 years and i picked it up for next to nothing.

While attempting to start the truck to make sure all it needs is a clutch we were having some bad reading on the ICP regulator. While spinning over the highest the PSI would get (according to the Solus) was about 130 PSI. my buddy ran a 12 volt hot wire from the battery to the positive side of the ICP Regulator and i spun it over and it fired up, we let it run for about 4 seconds and shut it off.

When checking voltage at the ICPR I am reading 12 volts but the amperage is so low it will not light my test light. Any suggestions where to go next?
Thanks
MIke

Have you tried unplugging the ICP sensor and seeing if it will start that way? That will cause the computer to go to a default measurement of i believe 650psi oil pressure which is needed to fire your injectors. Also i would swap out your cps and see if thats the cause of the no start.

it isn't a CPS IF THE TRUCK STARTED>>>>>>>>>>

odds are your wiring to the IPR is shorted, take a good look at the harness and see if it is bad....

I have not tried unplugging it. I will try that.

If the CPS sensor was bad the tachometer would not work, correct? Thats the first thing i thought of but the tach was working.
