Funny I was pretty sure the F-150's I pulled from were the 5.8? Oh well. I'll get it sorted. Thanks for letting me know about the Ballast bypass.
I did the multimeter tests and it came up fail on all of them. when I was supposed to have 12V it was .05 on both and the resistance test was way off.Not sure, but that might just be a void in the epoxy potting on Irk's. BTW, Maritime - are both of your fried or just one?
