diesel in the degas

hey just wondering if anyone can enlighten me on this, I just noticed there is about a gallon of diesel in the degas. It started out as engine oil in the degas but there was only a couple tablespoons and after I cleaned it out it didn't happen again, that was last summer/fall. I dont drive it much in the winter so I didn't notice anything abnormal. I'm thinking cracked injector cups but not sure, if theres someone that could point me in the right direction that would be great....thanks in advance, Rob. Maybe I should say that its an '02 F350 with 7.3ltr thanks again

I belive you are correct. I had to change a set of injector cups a few months ago for that very reason.

I can't believe I'm about to post this, but...
It's pretty spot-on, for replacing the cups with head's still on the truck.
But there are a few other videos out there as well.

Pretty easy to do really. The tool is the expensive part. I'd say it's 99% sure thing that its the cups and not a head problem.

EBPV delete, polish/paint cooler tubes and spider. Maybe throw a set of glow plugs and new harnesses in there if you have some extra cash. Hell, go crazy and get some upgraded injectors
