burning oil please help replaced injector o rings

Hello, Im a active member on fte, I was active on here when I had my 6.0 stroke I now have a 2000 f250 4x4 6 speed manual with 7.3 stroke engine 155k miles I just did all 8 glow plugs and 8 injector seal kits, I used the OEM alliant o rings from riffraff diesel and did a oil change with rotella 15 40

truck smoke blue every morning for about 3 minutes until it starts to clear up smells of oil and it is oil doesnt matter if its plugged in or not, truck runs and drives like normal

if you bring it above 2k rpm at idle it will blow blue smoke and yes smells of oil

I am getting no oil in the tailpipe and my turbo shaft does not have much play, I think it is fine

rings on the pistons I highly doubt are shot at 155k

not sure about valve seals

I cant keep driving the truck like this, oh also it smokes under load, if I cant figure this out I'm going to just trade it for something I'm tired of working on it more than I drive it

so can someone please name off some things I can check into

thanks

ok, I have been searching all day

I have found a few cases where the injectors have failed internally and somehow was burning the oil

could this possibly be my problem??

someone please comment, I'm going to call my local diesel shop tomorrow to see how much they can get me remanned injectors

Did you replace the injector cups when you did the o-rings? I could see a cracked injector cup causing this issue, especially with the RPM change and increase in smoke, as it would create more pressure.

Possibly not, depending on the crack relative to the injector o-ring placement. It would more be fuel in oil as well I believe. But as mentioned before thats what I would think it is, especially if they are original and you have pulled the injectors before.

Normaly you would, I just had a friend that changed his injectors and messed up his cups. As a result he had diesel in his coolant.

I would just pull and replace. I think there is a tool that you need to pull and place the new ones back in, I have heard that you don't need the tool, but without it it is a serious PITA. Testing I don't believe would be worth it, I don't think they are that expensive, also a little bit better insurance for later on!
