Leaing Oil Plug in HPOP

The other day I was pullin a 100 hp tractor on a gooseneck, and I smelled anitfreeze and saw white smoke comin from by the turbo pedistal. Well i changed out the water pump because it was bad and leakin alot of coolant, so i'm pretty sure that was the coolant smell. Me and my buddy looked back by the turbo and by the back of the passenger valve cover it is seepin oil. From what I hear it is the o ring on the oil plug for the high pressure oil. is there anything I need to know about this job before I start it Friday night?

u wouldn't happen to have any pics of it? I dont have the slightest clue to what it looks like. i'm assuming you went with a motorcraft one?

I think i am misunderstanding what you are talking about, you mean just the plug in the oil rail in the head? its a regular pipe plug. or do you mean the HPOP line fitting?

um if you could get a pic of what you are talking about then i could get ya the needed info. But as it sits if its just a plug leaking then its simple as can be, even if its an o ring on the line its still not tough. Both are like 2 wrench difficulty

If it is the plug on the hpop it is on the drivers side of the pump at about 5 o'clock. Dieselsite has a replacement plug with longer threads. If this is what is wrong you would have had oil EVERYWHERE!!! It is a 13mm head that you can get to with a greawrench with a pivoting head. But, when mine loosened up there was no coolant issues.

the coolant i'm pretty sure was from the water pump. anyways, the oil is just seepin out of the passenger side valve cover on the valley side, towards the back by the turbo pedistal
