My list of "To Do" things while its out.
1. Oil Cooler o-rings.
2. ICP o-ring
3. Oil pan gasket
4. IPR O-rings
5. Rear main seal
I also bought the oil rail end plug o-rings, oil rail o-rings, CCV o-rings, and turbo pedestal o-rings as well as a turbo rebuild kit since I am installing a Bean's 1.0 exhaust housing, and WW2 on the turbo.
I've already rebuilt the fuel bowl. I have one year old Rosewood Stage 1's in it and one year old glow plugs(ZD-11s). I also did the valve cover gaskets and wiring harnesses under them. HPOP is a T-500 and installed about 6mo ago.
I had oil leaks in the valley from the ICP o-ring, and the oil cooler was leaking as I didn't use the good viton seals last time. Oil pan gasket has always leaked since I got the truck as well.
Anything else you would do with the motor out of the truck?
On a side note. Even after doing the UVCH last year and all glow plugs + relay, this thing smokes like a freight train when cold. Its eye burning smoke and basically all diesel. Truck has no blow-by either. It always starts, but lopes badly for several seconds before evening out. Injectors were rebuilt by Rosewood last year. Any thoughts? Maybe bad up stream wiring? The full engine harness is saturated in oil, so I plan to go through it as well and clean everything and re-wrap it all.
Oh, and even when plugged in, I will get a slight blue/white haze from the tailpipe when its below freezing here in CO. None of my other 7.3s have ever smoked after being plugged in, and none of them ever came close to the smoke this will truck will throw un-plugged.
the oring on the LPOP and the dipstick. other than that you got everything i was going to suggest (oil rails plugs, pedistal, orings, oil pan) by the way the oil pan has no "gasket" just an RTV tyoe sealant. i have heard that it is smart to use the gray that was used originally i think it is wacker t 442
