97 Ford oil leak

I have a 1997 F250 Powerstroke 7.3 I have been fighting a oil leak which is coming down from the back of the motor and runs down the right side of the motor by the oil filter, I have installed all new oil rings on the turbo base and installed new valve cover gaskets and still have the same problem, can anyone help or have any suggestions about this.

Thanks dboo

clean it very thourogly and look at the high pressure oil pump. There will be two lines coming off the drivers side of it, and also a 18 or 19mm plug on the back. all three of these are common leak points

Oil Rail Plug Removal

On removing the Rail Oil Plug with the 1/2" square insert, I'm having trouble getting it to break free, are these plug right or left hand threads, everthing I can find on it doesn't clearly state I 'm thinking it should be standard right hand thread, and if there is some special tool or any suggestions on the how to remove them please reply.

Thanks deboo

I know old thread but I think I have a leak coming from the one behind the alternator. Does the alternator and entire bracket have to come off to replace it? is there a good write up on how to get to it and replace it?

Oil Leak

My Oil Leak was the back Oil Galley plugs located at the end of the heads, the passenger side came right out, the drivers side I had to drill a hole thru the fire wall in order to use a 1/2" impact to get it out, by them from International they are cheaper than Ford half the price.

The bracket LOOKS pretty simple to get off. Are there torque specs for the bolts on the bracket or just do it the German way, gudentite? I just got the truck a few weeks ago and need to pick a repair manual. Any recommendations fro service manuals?
