Rusting/seeping oil pans is a common place on not just the 7.3 but a host of other Ford products that make a living in the snow belt.

And the bad news is the engine has to be pulled to seal the pan the right way. If you've searched you may have found some people cut the cross member out and then weld it back in. Personally that option would never cross my mind.

Now an option at least worth trying is to get ahold of the folks at POR-15. They can suggest a fix that my get you by for a few more years before you have to pull the engine.

I let the oil drain for a couple days on mine, cleaned it lightly with a brush, then put JB Weld over the problem areas with a putty knife. So far so good.
