6.0 oil pump gear blows for fourth time

Hey guy, I have had the problem of my oil pump gear on the crank blowing up on me four times. once a 30,000 again at 61,000 then 66,000 which is when they put a short block in. Now im at 100,641 and it happened again. If anyone else has had or heard of this I need to know fomoco blows smoke at me and says im the only one this has happened to. It's B.S. any help would be great so i have some backing when they try and tell me its the way i drive. cause its not i drive big trucks at work all the time i know how to shift. I went through the FORD ASSET program, i worked for the dealer that i bring my truck to. i know what im doin when it comes to engines.

are they telling you that you over-reved the motor which caused the pump to come apart?

no they are not telling me that. they dont know what is causeing it. im thinking something like a balancer or fly wheel that is just a little out of balance. making the crankshaft walk and therefore makeing the gear blow into little peices. I have no vibration that im feeling, seeing how your a tech i could give u the vin an you run oasis n that will give u history on it. i was a tech at one time n decided it wasn't for me.

The only way I could conceive this to be possible, would be excessive crankshaft thrust end play, but that would also cause the crankshaft to "walk" enough to lose CKP SYNC, and in your engine to stall.

If it's breaking the oil pump, it should be getting a front cover when it does so.

Has the front cover been replaced? How about the cover over the pump itself where the seal mounts to?

Check crankshaft endplay. Is your truck a manual or an automatic?

Can you post up pics of the busted gears so we can see how they're breakin?

I understand what ur sayin m-chan, but again it take 30,000 for this prob to happen again. Yes the front cover has beeen replaced 4 times and when it got a short block all my old externals were reused. the truck is a stick, i know how to drive the truck i still have not put brakes on the truck it has 100641 miles on it. i know they are goin to try and point to me being the prob. i will post pics of the first time the gear blew when i get home to my own computer.
