Ok guys so my dads 03 6.0 powerstroke was having problems and would die and stuff. So i did a whole bunch of research and went ahead and went for the hpop. So I tackled the job not knowing what i was getting into but forums for the win. I went ahead and put in new hpop and seals and gaskets for itm,egr and turbo and changed ipc and with the pigtail. So anyway what a pain in the arse it was but got her done. But on the first start the truck made a awfull loud crunching sound like im guessing were the gears meet up for the hpop and trans are something. But didnt ever do it again just that once. It could of also been the starter anyone else ever witness this. And finally when i go to start truck it wont start right up after the glow plug light goes off but will start everytime once you hear the fuel pump done priming so just guessing i have to drive it more only did 30 miles so far then maybe air will come out lines.
I would imagine the HPOP (system) needs time to get the air out of the system. When I replaced mine ( 05 F250... same time as adding BPD oil cooler) it took a good 30 miles or more to get all the air out.
