pedestal question

I want to cut off the cylinder that houses the actuator rod. Is there a hole that I can tap and pipe plug? How does the cylinder get fed oil to actuate the rod? Someone please explain. I'd like to skip the step of tapping and plugging the actuator rod hole by cutting off cylinder and plugging the source that feeds the cylinder. Thanks and someone please help.

Sorry deezel, was waiting to see if someone with a little more knowledge would chime in. I did this on the last engine in my 97, pull the pedestal, remove the snapring on the back and tap the actuator rod to knock the rear plug out. That will allow you to slide the actuator rod and piston out. Pipe tap and plug the hole where the rod came out. I used a coreplug behind the rear plug on the pedestal, this is to cap off the oil coming into the cylinder, if you don't plug the two holes off at the back of the cylinder you'll lose some oil pressure to the turbo bearings (haven't been told this, just looked obvious to me). Install the coreplug (most folks call them freeze plugs) in far enough to reinstall the original plug in the back of the cylinder and reinstall the snapring. I'll see if I can find a link to this mod and post it. Just for the record, on the engine in my truck now, I left all this alone and hooked the EBPV up to a switch to use as a poor mans jake brake, works great and wouldn't do it anyother way myself. Later Whit

EBPV delete question - Powerstroke Nation

Deezel, I could not find anything on the org. Check this out its what I used to get the idea on how to do it to mine. Once again, this is not really gonna help the horsepower or torque but wiring it to a switch if the EBPV is working works great as an exhaust brake. Later Whit PM me if you have any more questions and I'll help all I can.

Thanks for your help Whit. Much appreciated. I don't have the means to weld so I was hoping to cut off cylinder and plug all necessary holes.

Hey deezel, just behind the rear plug is where the feed hole is from the oil, thats why most use a coreplug, its just about wide enough to completely plug that hole off and what gets by goes right back in the oil pan. I think I read it was a 22mm coreplug but I'm not sure, I happened to have a few around my shop so used one but didn't measure it. Later Whit
