95 7.3 liter Oil Filter bypass assembly fell out

95 7.3 liter Oil Filter bypass assembly
95 7.3 liter Oil Filter bypass assembly

Today when changing the oil filter The Oil Filter bypass assembly (spring,cap and washer) fell out of its housing. I need to get this truck on the road asap.
I tried to find a new complete oil filter housing but ford is on back order.
Is it possible to re-seat the parts back up into the housing?

I moved this to the problem forum for you. Maybe it will get a little more attention, as I have no idea.

I have read on this somewhere that you can't, but if I knew how it went back together I would try to reseat it with a punch. I think it is just bradded in there to stay. I think the new ones are held in with a snap ring. Sorry I can't help more.

If anyone is curious if this ever happens to you you gotta pull the oil cooler out and replace the portion that holds the oil filter. Ford sells them for 279 from where I am at, but I found one in the junk yard for 50 bucks. I would say to look and see if the bypass valve is punched in or held in with a c clip. It would seem to me that the c clip is a better option.

Also worth a look for any preventative maintenance are the o rings and block gaskets. Mine were pretty worn out and the o rings were hard as a rock. It was a PITA job but worth while.

if possible put the filter back on with out it.if the truck loses oil for some reason it will shut off on its own,there designed to shutoff before any dmage can occur.

Very bad idea. The oil bypass valve relieves the lubricating system in the event of a pressure spike. Without the bypass valve the system wont have enough pressure to lubricate the top end and Turbo. Those valves must be closed for the engine to get adequate lubrication.
