rolled 2 of them. the 7.3 had right rear tire blow. no fault or ticket. this is my 6.0 that i bought after that one. it has been since july last year and now i have the money to fix it. cranked it all the time at the house and no apparent leak. i am hoping oil was somehow on top of the engine after the roll and when we put on wrecker to go to the body shop, the angle of the wrecker bed made that oil run down the back of the engine. it took three quarts to fill it after the roll.
