    See these tests:

    He was [young] and [in good health]. -- coordinated adjective
    He seemed in good health. -- 'in good health' works with other copulas
    Where was he? -- This is not a question tho elicit 'in good health'.

    --> 'in good health' does not behave like a predicate adjunct (a prep. phrase in adverb function after a linking verb) because it is not a predicate adjunct, but an EDIT: subjective complement (adjective after a linking verb).

    Make more diagrams and put them in for discussion.
    Thanks God, it wasn't cigar otherwise it would polluted the Forum Thanks Kondorosi for guidance and help, I will try to make more diagrams.
