New OBS/Project Log

Finally was able to pick up my "new" truck on Wednesday. It is a 1995 F-350 dually. Currently has 260,000 miles on it, transmission was rebuilt 10,000 miles ago. Seems to be a good solid truck, definitely needs some TLC but appears to be a lot of truck for the money.

Here is what the truck looked like when I picked it up.

When I got home I noticed there was a significant oil leak. Saw it was looking from the oil pan. There is a nut on the passenger side of the oil pan that looks like it may have a sensor or something in it. I tightened the nut up and seems to be fine. Anyone know if I should take the nut off and put teflon on it or any other suggestions?

Last post/question. I noticed this valve under the truck. It has a line the runs from the drivers side valve cover to the valve and then has another line that runs from the valve to a bung in the exhaust. Any ideas?

Looks like the previous owner rerouted the crank case gases into a "catch" and then into the exhaust. As far as i know all you do there is drain the catch every oil change.
Some people just run a hose from the valve cover too atmosphere. Looks like you got a deluxe version lol.

That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure. Could I just run it straight to the exhaust and get rid of the valve? The valve is pretty low to the ground and I'm afraid it's going to get ripped off.

Thanks! Yeah the topper and side steps definitely had to be the first things I took off.

Well I was able to get the seats out a couple of days ago to make cleaning the carpet easier. After looking at the carpet with the seats out I decided to just go ahead and pull the carpet out as well so I could clean it and try to get out the stains as well as give it plenty of time to dry. The interior of the truck is complete and in good shape but it looks like it hasn't been cleaned in about 6 years.
