1995 7.3 Needs New Oil Pan

i need a new oil pan on my 1995 f250 Powerstroke. there is a small hole in the pan now and i patched it with jb weld before winter and i noticed that it is starting to leak again. i am goin to spend the money and just get a new oil pan and filter when i do it. my question is, do i really have to pull the motor out to replace the oil pan? some people say it is easier to do it that way.
and if i pull the motor how will i go about doin this?

my computer says to r&r the pan you should pull the engine out. calls for @ 17 hrs labor. i think ive heard of people doing it in the truck but im not sure

i hear that its a 14+ hr job to pull the motor out and replace the oil pan. found out it would cost about 2500 bucks. i can do it for the price of parts which is about 2-3 hundred dollars. 100 for the pan and probably 20 on the two part epoxy for the gasket and cost of oil and oil filter. That also leads to my other question, what should i use for a sealer/gasket? i heard to use a two part epoxy. is this true?

You definitely have to pull the motor. I've never heard of using two-part epoxy and I don't think I would do that - just in case I ever wanted to pull the pan off again. I used Motorcraft Ultra Gray Silicone for a lot of years until I found something even better - International Gray Silicone - which is what the engine came with originally.

Yeah, call your local International dealer. I tried to get a part number online with no luck.

Me amd my buddy did mine in one weekend its alot of work. But my trans was out as well which made it a little easier, i can not imagine trying to put it in with the trans in there to its a tight fit as it is. We had to take off the hood and the rad support and all that fun stuff, laid the wires up on the motor and took the ones that run across the rad support we pulled them back and tied to the wipers. If u have a forklift or tractor with a bucket thats where its at then u just gotta pull the hood and rad out and lift straight up.I used the International gray silocone as well, but if u do it when its hot out get everything ready to go. For me it started setting up fast and dont get ur face to close to that stuff it smells so bad.lol

I've heard of guys actually cutting out the front k member between the frame rails and welding it back in to avoid pulling the engine. Good luck, do it right and it'll outlast the truck. Maybe paint the new pan with some POR15.
