oil drip

I am getting a pretty good oil drip from between rear of engine and trannie. I have not pulled cover off bottom of bellhouse to see. In my 5.0 F150 it was the oil pan gasket leaking into the bellhouse. Is there anything besides rear main seal and oil pan gasket I need to be looking for on this diesel engine that can leak in this area? Thanks.

The top of the motor drains down the back and through that same spot. $ says that your oil leak is in the valley. Check EBPV solenoid, HPOP and all the HP oil plugs in the heads.

X2 what Matt said. What year and type of transmission? Some of the early 5-speed PSDs had issues with the inspection cover rubbing a hole in the oil pan. Cheers!

Year

Its a 96 Zf5. It does seem to drip more when it is slightly inclined on one of my driveway sections. I will be able to check it out Thursday when I finish flushing my coolant system out. Previous owner apparently liked tap water and no thermostat. Would not even warm up to the N in normal on the gauge. Slowly but surely fixing up this beast. Next has to be the exhaust... its cut off under the cab and I feel like I'm losing years off my life breathing it lol. Any good advice on downpipe and a good prefab system?

clutch

Can this oil be getting on my clutch causing the hard shifting in my post in the trannie section?

Hopefully Eric or Patrick sees your post. I have very little experience with the manual tranies.

Usually any oil that might get on the clutch will not cause hard shifting, but will cause a slipping clutch. Most of the time, stuff like rear main leaks will drip down, but not get on the clutch since it has to get past the flywheel. I'll have to look at your other post. Cheers!

Oil

Trying to find a diagram that shows the EBPV solenoid location (and maybe someone to define what that is) and HP oil pump plugs and torque specs on them so I don't break anything else. Just got my Western Snow Plow 56131 relay for my glow plugs to replace the stock one that I broke the terminal on by over torquing it. Installed it and seems to be working. Valve cover bolts torque specs would be nice too. Thanks.

find the pedestal and look to the right side of it in this pic. That is the oil solenoid that actuates the EBPV (see the little rod coming from it?). At the bottom of the picture is the rebuild kit form Ford. Valve cover bolts are 8lb-ft. Which HPOP plugs? On the HPOP itself, on the outside of the heads, or on the inside of the heads?
