top end maintenance

Newbie here! 01 F250 7.3 PSD. 210,000 and running strong. I want to pull it the shop in and fix a few oil leaks, install an AIS, and knock out anything else I should do while under the hood. Any suggestions? She starts and runs good so I'm guessing not much is needed. I expect the HPOP is the source of my leak. I have seen a kit to replace the o-rings on the fuel bowl. Is that worth my time while I'm working on it?

Thanks!

I would. Your gonna pull the bowl to get at the hpop anyways, might as well save yourself some future headaches.

with that many miles, i'd invest in the hpop lines as well. They seem to start going around the 150k-200k mark.

Inspectthe p/s fuel line, how it runs thru the "P" clamp, it wearsthere over time, causing a fuel leak.

Inspect turbo pedestal for leak/s, may need to get those orings. Better yet, order up the "CABINET KIT", has all orings for entire job...hpop, fuelbowl, pedestal/turbo...
