I used to rely heavily on manuals. I've been driving a diesel for approx 7-8 years and have never found a decent manual that compairs to the knowledge and reliability that can be found on websites such as this one.

Depending on if you live close to someone that's also a member of a site, they may offer to help on occation. There have been a few times I've recieved help & there have been other times that I've helped someone else. I've never found a manual that could do that either.

I used one from Ford CDs . com just to see what it was like, I'll probably buy the cds from ebay or elsewhere.

It's pretty in depth. I'd be surprised if there was a repar/testing/diagnosis/procedure question it doesn't answer.

That would be ideal :. We all feel your pain from time to time. The hard copy service publications from Ford are 2 volumes, plus diesel suppliments, plus Emissions volume for troubleshooting computer controls and specific to the NGS scan tool, plus evtm and finally wiring diagrams. All that info is supplemented by TSB's, oasis. The service manuals are written for Ford techs to service vehicles in warranty, so the routine is to send you round the horn to check EVERYTHING. Flawed, but the best available in my op.

The scans below are from the book Ford had produced to train techs at seminars when the PSD was new. Full color no less. Little repair info, explanation and introduction of systems, detailed photos of each component, design details. These weren't sold to the public, info given out on a need to know basis. I have this one scanned, and another for the 99 up PSD on shelf. Lots of time to scan. I haven't found a way to reproduce them in full color hard copys that isn't somewhat expensive. Anyone in the printing business?

Duke has the top of the motor photo labeled and posted on site. That will help with where everything is, as well as the forums. Welcome to the electronic jungle Pitjeep.

Cps is on the right (pass) front cover below water pump and above the damper. Shown in these photos but not labeled. Easier to find it from under the truck.
Hope this comes out without the paint program borders :bow:

Bump to the top to correct my typo. Bigdraft posted the Top of the motor photos with parts labeled (OBS truck). It's a sticky on the top of the forum page. Nice job Kevin :Thumbup:.
