94.5 7.3 powerstroke seal for motor oil pan

I notice that my oil pain seal/gasket is leaking, but I do not want to pull the motor can a person pull the transmission, it's a five speed standard f350 then take the oil pan out and slide it out towards the back any help or advice would be freaky appreciated!

The motor needs to be lifted several inches for the pan to clear the crankshaft. I use this to great effect as long as the leak is not where there are moving parts (rear seal mainly). Get the engine hot, clean the area well with brake cleaner, let the cleaner evaporate, spray on a very thin coat, wait 10 minutes and repeat 2 more times. If it starts to drip you used too much. Wait longer.

Your leak may not be this, but check anyway: On the 94.5's the flywheel inspection cover can wear a hole in the oil pan (and it did on mine). Mine only leaked when running. You can get an updated cover or grind off the lip on the original. I ended up cleaning the area really well with Brakecleen and then filling the "slot" with JB Putty. I then coated it with 3 coats of POR-15 and it did not leak again. Cheers!

I have the same small leak on mine if you can find where exactly the leak is .. Like I did I took the time and just real carefully scrapped some of the rtv out and cleaned it up and applied a nice new bead of rtv and now I have no leak

I had to raise the engine quite a bit to clear the pickup, mains, etc. It is a P.I.A. I got rid of the stock dipstick tube adapter and welded on a steel one. No more O-ring. There is a big O-ring on the inside of the pan. As it swells over the years it causes the nut on the inside of the pan (O-ring is under the nut) to bend. I couldn't believe how much force an O-ring can apply! Also, Ford uses a gray rtv to seal the pan, no pan gasket.
