HPOP Help!

Now it's back to the HPOP. Is there anyone who can help me with the final steps to removal so that I can replace the STC fitting? As I wrote in my prior post, I'm down to the pump itself (the cover is off)...I'm seeing (3) star bolts that hold it down. Are there any other connections (STC oil pipe) that need to be disconnected? Thanks again!

bolts holding the pump down are T45. you'll want to unbolt the pump, unbolt the fitting at the branch tube and pull it all out as one. put the pump in a vise and remove/install the fitting that way.

Be most careful not to drop any bolts, tools, or parts down past the HPOP and into the engine of you will spend hours and hours for a second of not paying attention.

When you are installing the new STC fitting you much screw it into the HPOP exactly 5 full turns after thoroughly oiling the threads and jamnut. Then torque the jamnut down the 49 ft/lb with a 15/16" crow foot. Do this right the first time so you are really doing your truck some good. Did the fitting blow out? Be sure to inspect your rear engine cover good as well.
