Thank you, FordGuy100. Nice looking truck, BTW.
This pic shows the area at back of block at #4. The head line is hard to miss.
Mechanic poured in a gray metallic solution to try to temporarily slow the leak; doesn't look like it was effective. A friend told me about a product called Blue Devil. Anyone have any experience with that, as I am nearing that last-ditch-effort point?
A local search for a used engine turned up only a truck version, condition listed as "runs and smokes," for $400. Definitely pass on all counts!
Looks like there aren't many van 7.3 IDIs still out there. I understand that the oil cooler, fuel filter mounts and such are different between the truck and van versions.
