that is pretty common for a 7.3.....clean it up good...the orange tubes that go into the heads are common for the clamps to loosen up....the high pressure o rings leak sometimes......Go to the "tech files" section and there is a whole write up about it.....Marc

use whatever degreaser you want....let it sit for a bit.....then i always spray them off running so if i hit the exhaust there is still some heat being produced so there isnt such a rapid cooldown.....but ive blown a lot of motors off with a pressure washer......yet to see one diesel have a problem.......Marc

First place I'd look is at the drain plug and filter, make sure they're good and clean.
