I was traveling I-95 North in Northeastern NC at 70 MPH when the engine bucked and hiccupped 3-4 times, set the SES light on and shut off. I was able to fire it back up and limp to an exit and it happened again before I reached the exit. I coasted to the top and got off the interstate. I had a spare CPS in the glove box, changed it out and the truck ran fine afterwards.


It was a 10 year old "black" International 1825899C93. What is the recommended replacement for this CPS for the modern day?


The new CPS also took care of a low RPM 42 MPH engine skip that I first thought was a tire balance issue!

A long answer would be to read this thread - http://www.thedieselstop.com/forums...blue-cam-position-sensor-perdels-test-257398/

The short answer is the black is still the best but unavailable. The dark blue comes in second, and the Ford recommended grey comes in a distant third. All of the non-international brands come in so far behind the pack it isn't worth considering. For example, some people have got the Echlin CPS to work by adding about a half pound of ferrite chokes to various wires. None of that is needed with the International CPS line.

RT,

I purchased an International CPS today. My old number crossed over to a Grey colored CPS from International. I know this is currently a spare that will ride in my glove box, but it may be the primary one day. Should I just use it and not worry about color/type since this is all I seem to be able to get from International?

The dark blue that RT mentioned is IH P/N: 1876736C91 (Ford P/N: F4TZ-12K073-C) and they will show it was for pre-2000 trucks but it works in our 1999.5-2003 trucks.

I have the same gray one you bought and wish I had returned it for the dark blue one listed above.

Was your spare a black one? Thats a real bit of good luck.

My spare was the "good black one" from International. It was around 10 years old, riding in the glove box. I will check on the "blue one" from International. Thanks.
