Sorry, I determined the PMD to be faulty due to past experience with stalling, surging and difficulty starting. It is hard to test because the prolem begins intermittedly when it gets hot and only progresses from there and gradually gets worse. begins dying once or twice a week and progresses to 3 or 4 times a day, usually in traffic on on the interstate. It will ocassionally give a check engine code but not everytime. The PMD is currently mounted on the IP but I am now waiting on the cable i have ordered to move the new one to the bumper or other cooler location. I don't have access to a known working unit for testing just hoping past experience is leading me in the right direction, if it turns out to not be the problem at least I will have a spare...

I hope you intend to mount the PMD to a large heatsink and remember to get a replacement PMD resistor.

Yes to the heat sink. Do I need to get a new resistor?

Only if you can't remove the one currently in the failing PMD,if you do get it out-it will need to be neuter'd to fit the black PMD.

I believe its the other way around, its likely already been trimmed to fit in the grey one which could make it extra difficult to remove if the trim job was not real good, it could be jammed in there. The grey ones I have seen have all had trimmed ones in them.

If the IP came with a grey stanadyne PMD it would have the gold plated IP harness installed.
Since Darrin Sherrill said the PMD was still on the IP I assume it has the proper harness and would require the IP end of the extension harness trimmed along with the resistor if it were to be re-used.
