7.3 dying - Rebuild Time!!!!

After changing every conceivable part on my 7.3, I'm still having issues with the oil pressure. Looks like be have some bearing issues. Getting a new longblock built, new DP F6 tuner and Autometer pillar gauges.

200k. Before I got it, it was chipped and stacked. Good maintenance records, but the mains took a beating.

Update: Looks like 2 cracked (exhaust seats) heads and pitted main bearings. The crank will clean with a polish. I'm upgrading to a high pressure Melling LPOP in addition to the Wicked Wheel. My diesel guy told me that head studs wouldn't be necessary for my build, so we're skipping that. I'll basically have a brand spakin new longblock. Can't wait!
