Dry HPOP (Another one!)
Hi Everyone from the UK.
I have a 2000 F350 7.3
It has been stood for a few months, so I started it and moved it to put some air in the tires. It suddenly went pop and hasn't started since. The CPS is ok as the rev counter moves, but the HPOP is dry. No oil leaks anywhere.
I have refilled the HPOP a few times, but still no start. The oil pan is up to the mark. Now the oil light stays on while cranking and no reading on the gauge. Sounds like LPOP? Do they suddenly fail like that?
Now, being in the UK I have to order parts from the US. So I guess I need a new LPOP. Is there a special puller for the harmonic balancer? Where do I get one?
So the truck isn't stuck in the shop for weeks, is there anything else I should buy? If the oil pickup pipe has failed, can you drop the oil pan without pulling the motor?
Many thanks in advance! Paul
