M 96 F350 decided to spring a leak in the oil pan. If I do end up pulling the motor, what major repairs, would you suggest to take care of while the motor is out? 160,000 miles.

headstuds, valvesprings, bigger injectors, electric fuel system, 3" downpipe, and maybe turbo if it fits your budget.

repalce any plugs that are corroded. i.e. my coolant plug by the oil cooler corroded out. i had to drill twice and use an easy out. not much room for a wrench in that spot. so check all the plugs, the coolant pipe plug was 96 cents at a local hardware store. glwos will be easier to get to as well. up-pipe gaskets, rebuild the turbo if its hasnt been done. (kit is about $200).

I ended up bringing the truck to my local shop. I did not want to take on this big of project in my garage. They may have a way to do the pan without pulling the motor. However, I am half tempted to have them pull it anyways, after reading all the post.

It never crossed my mind to look at the plugs. Budget is not there for performance upgrades but rebuilding the turbo might be worth going into debt.

I also figured valve cover gaskets, glow plugs, water pump, seals.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I should know by Friday what the path is going to be. $$$$$$$$$$$

have the turbo checked for spec first. if a shop is doign the work they may charge about $800 for a turbo rebuild. there is a good article on diesel power mag about rebuildign the OBS and SD turbos. the VC gaskets are re-useable. water pump isnt a bad idea. if you repalce the glows dont let them replace the relay, get a stancor relay instead. its an extra $20 or $30 but well worth it. and do that one yourself. also oil cooler rebuild is a good idea too. dont know what they will charge, but the kit is about $60 on diesel o-rings.

Picked up the truck today. Big thanks to Howard. He managed to replace the oil pan without pulling the motor. Well I gues it was not that easy. Tranny and transfercase were pulled, and a few other trade secrets I can not give away.

Now my truck has a new oil pan, dip stick, all new brake lines, from the master to the rear end. Stops on a dime now. And a whole list of you might as well's.

Thanks for the input everyone. Good to have her back.
