7.3 pedistal rebuild?

I have a few items which I'm considering having done; one of which is my leaky EBPV actuator. I called the local diesel repair shop (who seems to know fords pretty well) for a ballpark repair cost for the total job (which I wont' burden you with the details)....anyway...

During this conversation he mentioned a reman pedestal is more cost effective than 'fixing' the old one. I questioned that and asked exactly what in the pedestal is not reusable. He said the piston that drives the actuator and there's also a regulator valve. He said both of those things require time consuming adjustment which make a reman unit more cost effective.

I think he's full of it....or is he not?

thanks!!

Delete the EBPV, put new O rings in the pedestal and be done with it

ebv rebuild

I just did a rebuild on my 7.3 ex. It was leaking oil from the shaft side of the ebv. Now after replacing all the parts inside, it is leaking just as bad or worse than before. Anybody have any suggestions on what to do besides deleting? I did everything as directed, and this isn't my first mechanical experience. I even made sure I correctly set the preload.

Someone help please.

The one that I rebuilt was as simple as could be. I forget what the parts cost, but it all came as a kit. It takes about 15 minutes at the most (If your turbo is already sitting on your bench). No problem at all. I set my pre-load by eyeballing it. The shaft is a little short, but all that means is that the valve won't close all the way like it should. It's close enough though.

so, is this mechanic feeding me the line about it being cheaper to replace than fix or what?
