'96 7.3 HPOP RESEVIOUR LOW OIL LEVEL??

If the HPOP oil level is low and its not leaking, where is the oil going? And what should the normal level be. I'm assumeing it should be full, but don'nt know for sure. And am I correct in saying that the LOW PRESSURE OIL PUMP is the main oil pump for the engine?as well as for the HPOP?

Back into the oil pan.

Within an inch or so of full.

Correct; some call it the "low pressure oil pump", as if it's some specialty part, but it's really just the same kind of oil pump as found on any engine. It also supplies the oil to the HPOP, through the reservoir.
