Mine too. Grab the gaskets from diesel o-rings as they are MUCH cheaper. Process is pretty easy as long as you can get to the front bolts. Most people losen the alternator and power steering pump after removing the belt and slide it forward a little.
Most difficult part is pressing the end caps back onto the cooler. Seen photos of people doing it with body weight and a piece of wood. Regardless, i do not plan on doing it myself. Id rather pay a shop for an hours worth of labor than have to deal with the fluids in the cold. No garage here.
Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.
My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.
