Leak At Dipstick/Oil Pan Part # Please!!??

So local diesel shop wants $300 to MAYBE fix the leak, & let me know if motor needs to be pulled...
Sounds fishy to me..
I know SD makes the fix kit, where you leave the original flange in the bottom of the pan.. But $300 seems steep..
Does anyone else make such a kit??
Or has anyone used the one from SD..
I am wanting to tackle this project sometime this week..
Will just go to local Ford & try the $3 gasket 1st if I have no other options..
Thanks ALL!!!

you have to remove motor to remove pan to remove dipstick, diesel site makes a fix kit and are the only ones iirc, but its not cheap, but cheaper than ford removing engine to fix it

I think I will try to replace the O'Ring myself 1st then..
My logic....
If a pull a D**$HIT move & drop the flange in the oil pan..
Then I will order the fix kit...

more than likely you will, but im sure someone has actually done it, I actually just took a giant gob of permatex and put it around it, my f250 already had the kit on it when I got it

Seems like many have done the job & most state being CAREFUL it's about an hour or so, including removal of starter..
Just curious... Which sealant did you use?

International has a kit of some sorts.


But i don't see why you couldn't seal it with IH grey RTV on the outside. Just make sure that everything is CLEAN, clean it again, and go to town with RTV. When i had my engine out i replaced the o-ring, then filled and sealed it inside and out with RTV. It'd take an act of god to make it leak.

"IH grey RTV" Is this an International brand? Or available from local parts stores???

You can only get it from Ford or IH, i've got a tube of each out in the garage somewhere, i'll dig it out and get some pics. Its the same stuff, just labeled differently. And I think it says right on the label, "For use in 7.3 Powerstroke applications".

It's the RTV that is used to seal everything on these engines from the factory, and IMO is one of the toughest sealants out there. Its not cheap stuff, but as long as you prep everything good it will seal just about anything you could think of and hold up well.

I will look into that stuff as a fix for now..
I'm pretty sick of parking my truck in our gravel..
Plus it will get pretty expensive to keep adding oil as much as I'm losing!!!
