In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership, visit https://web.fsavinlists.dealerconnection.com. This information will be available on December 04, 2007. REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL In some of the affected vehicles, the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor may fail due to circuit degradation. If the CMP Sensor should fail, the engine may stall. In the event of an engine stall, a crash could result without warning. A new CMP Sensor with improved reliability is now available. SERVICE ACTION Dealers are to inspect the CMP Sensor to verify which design level sensor is installed in the affected vehicles, and replace all prior level sensors. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner. OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE Parts to repair this condition are currently not available in sufficient quantities to service all of the affected vehicles. Therefore, to ensure that an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected vehicles will be notified in separate phase mailings over several months. Phase mailing will begin the week of December 17, 2007; prioritized by age of vehicle. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

Hi, i'm from ford-trucks.com (ford truck enthusiast).
The blue 7.3 navistar CPS unit is said to be more rugged than the ford CPS, however, it is still prone to failure, as 7.3 diesel engines experience different operating conditions in a pickup truck, such as frequent heat/cool cycles that may cause some parts of the engine to degrade quicker than a larger truck.
The "new" CPS is supposed to be better than any other CPS you can currently buy.
I stopped in saturday morning to get my oil changed and we were chit chatting about forged/pmr's and he said oh yah, your truck is under the recall -- so i said do it if ya can and they did -- didn't take any longer than a normal oil change.. hung out in the service dept chattin until the truck was ready!
