2 Questions for you guys...

Guys I have a 2001 F250 with the 7.3 PS. The oil pan finally started leaking. I am going to pull the engine out and replace the pan with a new factory pan.
My truck runs flawless and has 152K on it.
I had the trans done a couple years back.
So question 1 Do I need to remove the radiator support to pull the engine?
Question 2 What should I consider replacing while the engine is out?

Thanks

Definitely do up pipe gaskets while you have it out.

Replace the donuts or go with the bellowed up pipes and no more donuts as stated previously. I would also do the non ebpv pedestal and the non ebpv exhaust housing, or gut the factory stuff, or at a minimum replace the o-rings on the pedestal. Maybe rebuild the oil cooler with new o-rings also. Just whatever may be hard to get to with the motor in.

Thanks guys. I do plan to go over the engine and fix what I see can be a possible future issue.
The reason for me to ask is of coarse if its not showing any signs of leakage, I might have just moved on.
So keep the "check outs" coming please.

Get a hold of the folks at POR15, Inc. - Stop Rust Permanently - Repair Gas & Fuel Tanks

Depending on how bad your leak is they may be able to come up with a fix for you without having to pull the engine or the pan. A lot of people swear by the stuff and I'll give anything a try before I have to pull a perfectly good running engine.

I'd get this - Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines
This is an oring for basically any leak the motor will develop. In the list it doesn't say oil cooler so I'd get it too if you wanna do it all.
But I'd rebuild the fuel bowl, new orings on all the HPOP fittings, turbo and pedestal orings, oil cooler orings, and make it nice and clean while it's out.
