So recently I decided to move forward with some preventative maintenance/upgrades on an '01 F450. It's a dump truck that the company I work for recently bought and we've been having a bunch of issues with it. Of course, after we bought it one of the workers who used to drive the truck for the previous company actually told one of our drivers that he "drove the piss out of it". The truck runs OK, bit of a hard start, but it leaks oil/PS fluid everywhere and I believe it's coming from a couple spots on the front of the motor. So I decided while I was tracking that down I would go ahead and replace some other parts.
Anyways I wanted to give you all a list of everything I have ordered and plan on installing at the same time and see if you guys have any suggestions I should take into account before starting this project.
Here is a list of all the parts I got...
Airtex Water Pump (AW4114)
Upper and Lower Rad Hoses (GATES 22433 & 22690)
New OverFlow Tank (Dorman 603213)
Airtex Aux Fuel Pump (E2236)
A1 Cardone PS Pump (207238F) Cap and Pulley (Dorman 82582 & 300019)
Power Steering Hoses: Hydro-Gear (352790), Pump-Hydro (352800), Gear-Cooler (365437) and Cooler-Res (365436)
New EBPV and Line (Motorcraft DPFE3 and Dorman 598114)
New Motorcraft IPR (CM5013)
8 New Glow Plugs (Motorcraft ZD11)
New Adrenaline HPOP (for better tow capacity and fuel mileage)
HPOP Res Gasket with Screen
Coolant Filtration Kit + Ball Valves
Engine Boot Kit
Intercooler Boot Kit

Riff Raff Parts:
Plenum Reinforcing Collars and (2) T-Clamps
Diesel O-Rings Parts:
Master O-Ring Kit (just to have a kit with O-Rings for any unforseen repairs)
Some of you may think this is a little overboard, but it is a Heavy Duty application where the truck is pretty much always fully loaded and needs to be somewhat efficient. I'm a huge advocate of the "while-im-at-it" process in case you can't tell by my parts list
