Gotta pull the 7.3 to reseal oil pan

i just got a 01 f-350 truck and the pan gasket is what we believe to be leaking. I HATE oil leaks so i'm gonna pull it out and fix it. I know its not coming from the drain hole in the valley, already checked it. I knew it when i bought it and it doesn't bother me to do. I have a friend that is a machinist that is gonna make me a installer for the rear main! So as long as it's out i plan to pull the back cover and reseal that, the rear main, oil pan and i know the nut that holds the dipstick tube adapter in the pan is almost stripped as i tightened it for Dustin when i put injectors in it cause it was starting to seep. Anyone know where i can get one of those new??? Also i am gonna replace the turbo pediastal o-rings and turbo o-rings. I also plan to replace the up pipe doughnuts as i've done them in the truck at work and i know what kind of a pain it is. Wasn't there a better doughnut to use?? Anyone give me a part number or tips?? Anything else i should do?? My dad thinks i should check the bearings but i'm leary of doin it because i know that if i go that far i tend not to stop. It has 203,000 miles it. Do you guys think i should??? Also how do i tell if it has the forged rods?? It will probably be a month or two before i do it, but i wanna get everything ready and take a 4 day weekend and get it out and in. I HOPE. Thanx, Brandon.

i pulled mine out for oil pan leak and am still rebuilding it now.
could have just resealed but thought with 187000 on it might as well. mine looked pretty good inside but needed a couple exaust valves and i got the heads worked over by a goo machine shop (ouch) but i know when its all together again it'll be good for another 2-300,000. my thinking is if its out just do it. but thats me. its all about time and $$$. if you don't have extra of both then don't get all the way in. once you go there you might see something that makes you say oh well im this far might as well...

Yea to be honest thats what i'm scared of. I have a tendancy to like everything perfect. Problem is i need it to pull our race car on April 4, 2008. Only problem i'm building the shop now to build the race car in since we totalled old one. And then i have to build a couple race motors one for the race car and a cleveland for a buddies f-100 truck. It runs perfect. I'm affraid if i take it apart i'll completely rebuild it and put head studs and better valve springs in it for a future turbo upgrade. Then if i do that it'll turn into a turbo, oil pump, and bigger injectors yet. It has the RDS 50 horse injectors that i put in it this september when it was still my buddies truck. Where to stop......... How did your bearings look and cylinders???

Does anyone have these answers? I am getting erveything ready to pull the motor and trans to replace the engine oil pan. I believe mine is a PMR motor. Are there Forged rods to buy that are not crazy expensive. I would like to go forged with head studs. for future additions.
Any info would be great thanks
Tony

Get on beansdiesel.com and look under the 99.5-03 7.3's. Look under the turbos and take a look at the brass up pipe donut gaskets made just for this problem. Also check out the special on the ICM upgrade for $100. It upgrades the 100v stock ICM to 140V. I just ordered both of these and the compressor wheel they sell yesterday.
