Time to pull the engine.

Well y'all, my two year oil leak has finally got to the point where I'm going finally bite the bullet and pull the engine to fix it right. It has been leaking at the back corner at the oil pan right above the starter gear. I went to the gas station and always peek under top see how bad it might be. This time it was about the size of both my hands open side by side in a matter of less than five minutes of being shut off.

Sooo...

Its going to get:

-Studs bought from Gearhead2012
-910 springs
-New oil pan (with myself modifying the dipstick hole)
-Possibly going to build my own headers (I don't think I want my truck down for that long though)
-Install my OEM '06 headlights bought from another member on here
-Going to weld a bung on my intercooler while its out to be sure oil stays drained out from CCV.
-I'm also going to modify the pan for better clamping too. I did this with my valve covers and its worked well. I may decide to drill n tap an extra bolt back where its currently leaking like ford should have done.
-Obviously all fluids changed

If anyone else would like to chime in on some other things to do while its out I'd much appreciate it.

Also, I've read it from a few very reputable members here when doing studs on a 7.3 don't pull the heads if there's nothing wrong, just do one at a time. I do know its better to pull them on a 6.0. Although I am curious as to how the cylinder walls look. Hopefully curiosity doesn't kill the cat.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to do this with somewhat of a budget in mind. I'd really like to get a Gearhead cam and 250/200 sticks too but that's not gonna happen for a while. as I have a bunch of needed upgrades to the wife's Liberty CRD to do.

I'm rebuilding my motor right now, I decided to do a regulated return and a set of bellowed up pipes among other things. I think those would be worthwhile upgrades while your in there!

Me neither.

Engine is an International reman that was installed by PO. Previous mechanic over tightened vc bolts and tweaked the VC's.


What's your take on the stud install Joe? Dentex seems pretty adamant about one at a time. Pull the heads and new gaskets or just swap out one at a time??

One at a time... Tq to factory spec. Once they are all installed then use the ARP or H11 TQ sequence.

Use the proper lube too.

Got that covered. I might just go ahead and do a compression check for the heck of it to give me peace of mind and not worry about pulling the heads.

If the motor is gonna be out then do the studs and gaskets at the that time.....cause you well kick yourself if you have to do it in the truck. Had a gentleman tell me if the motor had low miles on it....aka about 50-60,000....then one at a time is fine....otherwise do them all at the same time....just my 2¢. There are more experienced people on here tho with more knowledge than me....that's for sure.
