Extra Springs from 7.3 Overhaul. Please Help.

I did a complete 7.3 Powerstroke Overhaul from a 2002 F350. I've got the motor 95% put back together and I found two springs in an unmarked bag. Yes the only unmarked bag I had two springs. I have looked through every tech document, online manual and my Ford CD that I purchased and I can't find where these two springs go.

I've got several pictures on picasso so you can see what they look like.

Picasa Web Albums - pktmobrien - Extra Springs...

I know for a fact they aren't the ones from the Oil cooler connector.

Possibility???

Does anyone think that it is possible that these springs don't belong to a 7.3 powerstroke at all?

A service counter guy at a Ford truck center went back to one of his Ford Light Duty Technicians and asked him about these springs. The service counter guy came back with the response that his Technician didn't know where these went. I figure, surely a Ford Dealership Mechanic would know about these springs. I also asked another long time Ford Mechanic at a construction company about these and he didn't know either.

I know anything's possible, but does anyone agree with the idea that these springs don't belong in a 7.3 powerstroke and someone slipped them into one of my parts bags?

Surely there has been enough guys on this forum that have overhauled these 7.3 Powerstrokes enough to have come across these or not and know if they belong.

Now that you say that, I believe the HPOP Lines were the items in my second unmarked bag so you may have just solved the mystery. I'll check tonight when I go home and see if the springs insert somewhere into the lines or fittings. Thanks for your help.

When you remove the lines from the pump they are located right there in the pump. That is if they are the ones I'm thinking of.

Goodluck

NoLimits: I owe you a beer. You were dead on. Those springs shown insert into the High Pressure Oil Pump where the hoses connect to the pump.

Thank You Very Much NoLimites
