Stand pipe dummy plug question

I was in the process of changing them and the stand pipe stayed in the block so I just changed the plug on the stand pipe. Everything g looked the same so I just replaced the plug and left the tub think that will cause a problem

I had the same thing happen. I spent the 10 minutes to remove the oil rail and retrieve the bottom half of the stand pipe. It probably would have been fine but how mad would you be if it causes a problem that an extra 10 minutes worth of work would have prevented?

Your better off to get rid of the two peice stand pipe and update it to the one piece, they updated the whole thing for a reason.

I have the updated stand pipes. I'm fairly sure they are still 2 piece. I remember taking one apart when I briefly considered just installing the top half like the OP. Of course, I could be losing my mind but I believe the only difference is a white ring beside the o-rings and a 12 mm hex instead of the original 10 mm.

He beat me to it.

You are correct on that haze I spend 10 min or longer with one that came out as a hole and on that stayed in and I am going to give it a shot I will update everyone Saturday guys. Everyone has been a big help in figuring out what has been the problem with my truck and it long starts after sitting for a while. So fare I think the dummy plugs and stand pipe will fix the problem
