Suggestions?

So I'm pulling the lump back out truck again. Last time I replaced all gaskets except rear main and head gaskets. As well as oil pan.
It's been leaking when running since so I obviously screwed somewhere, think it's rear cover.
Now manifold bolts broke I taking it out again to drill them out and repair what I supposidly fixed.
I have new water pump, fan clutch, tensioner. Upper rad hose rerouting kit, up pipes, y collector and manifolds.
Wondering if anyone has any other things I should maybe look at doing while it's out. Trying to avoid heads etc. If it ain't broke don't fix it I think on those.
I want to plug the EBP fitting on manifold since I removed that a while ago. And turbo and injectors are all recently rebuilt so should be fine.
I keep seeing reference to 6.0 trans cooler, is this something worth doing? And is it a straight swap?
Anything else I'm missing I should consider?

you sure its the rear main leaking and not something up top?

you could be getting an oil leak from the turbo pedestal, hpop, hpop lines, oil rail plugs etc.

just trying to give you some options to look at before you pull the motor.


oh and ditch the k&n filter while your doing all that work. theirs tons of threads on intakes on here so just search an choose.

It's not the rear main. It's the rear engine cover I think. I thought was turbo but now it's off I don't think so.

No. Valley is dry. Little black at very back but not wet. Oil drips from inspection cover and looked like was coming from valley. But now turbo off and can see. Doesn't appear to be from there and it's actually running down back and the inspection cover is just a low point it drips from. I think it's either the rear engine cover or maybe the oil way plugs in the heads. I've heard that can leak.

Well motor has to come out regardless. No way to drill the rear bolts on exhaust manifolds without. They broken flush with head and Not flat. So have to pull them so can drill out properly. Hoping it's not the plugs. This is an ohio all it's life truck, everything had rust issues.
Just gotta last till next year then she's getting a rebuild.

sounds like you got your work cut out for you!

id look into getting the mechanic parts cabinet set of orings and such from riffraff or dieselorings.

that way when you have the motor out you can reseal just about everything.

Yeah I'll probably do that.
I actually enjoy doing it. Especially when have boxes of shiney new parts to put on. But don't tell truck that, she doesn't need to be getting used to this attention! Plus the stack of boxes in living room isn't going over well with other half. Only thing keeping me safe at moment is truck needs finished so her sebring can come in and get rebuilt. (Don't ask lol).
