Well, I have to pull the motor! What should I do while its out!

Well, the oil pan on my truck has started to leak through rust on the bottom part of it so it looks like I have to pull the motor. It is 2WD, so it looks to be impossible unless you pull the motor. Do you guys think otherwise?

I have stage 1 injectors from rosewood diesel in it already, and I was thinking while it was out I would try and address as many issues as I could before I put it back in.

Things on my mind:

~Super Duty HPOP (Have already)
~Valve Springs
~Pushrods maybe
~Glow Plugs
~Pan obviously

I just put a valve body in the tranny not too long ago and it shifts awesome! (Truck went 14.8 at 89mph in the quarter also) So if I can get by without touching the tranny/converter that would be nice, maybe a bigger cooler would be in order.

I was thinking potentially a fuel system for it also, but is the only way to do it on these truck to drop $1100 on a kit? I have a Mustang that is my money pit now and I really don't want another one. Will putting a fuel system in it and the HPOP be too much for--- the stock turbo, stock head studs, and no intercooler? I heard the fuel system makes the truck run like a new truck and helps protect the injectors.

Any input is welcome guys! I would much appreciate it!!!!

the doh trucks in our shop have the pans sprayed with rhino lining when replacing them to prevent them from rusting.

I think Stage 1s are just larger nozzles.(Please correct if wrong) You dont have a need for a new fuel system unless you are losing pressure. If you are Fass makes a good unit for 700-800$

I'm pretty sure stage 1s for an OBS truck are different than for a newer 7.3l. Stock injectors are only 90cc on an OBS where as the stage 1s are 160cc.

To my knowledge FASS does not make a kit for an OBS truck either.

Thanks guys!

I will replace the up pipe donuts while its out too! I was thinking about painting the pan with rhino lining too like others have said to avoid any possible way of it happening again.

What does anyone think of the fuel system? Is it needed at this level?

What year is your truck or the engine? Yes the engine has to come out to do the pan.

pan
super duty dipstick
rear main seal
valve springs
headstuds

I expand when I know the year.

Stage I's are the same, typically 160cc stock nozzle, no matter what year 7.3L.

You replace the fuel system on an OBS because it has a mechanical pump. Going to a SD or aftermarket fuel system is a nice improvement.
