It is a Borg Warner pump from O'Reillys. Also, I'm sure it is a rebuild, not a new pump. I went with that one as it had a lifetime warranty. The other one they had cost way more, and only had a one year warranty. Anyway, I'd like to think that it was just poor workmanship on their part, and never got torqued down properly. I don't even want to think about cam issues! Oh well, I guess it's time to go fishing, and not the fun kind!
For what it's worth, when the truck is running, it runs great. I run 5w40 Rotella T6 Synthetic, I use Power Service at every fill up, and am running CAT ELC coolant. It has about 160,000 mi, but I have only had it for the last 20-30 thousand, so who knows how it was taken care of before me.
Actually, the before me is what started this whole mess. Green Antifreeze. Oil filter plugged leading to EGR failure. I welded plugs into both ends of the EGR cooler, cleaned out the intake, replaced EGR cooler. Flushed out old coolant with CAT Cleaner and several rounds of distilled water, then filled with about 60/40 CAT ELC. That was a month and a half ago. The gasket under the oil cooler started to disintegrate already(also from Oriellys, really starting to question their stuff), and caused the HPOP issues. This time I replaced HPOP and IPR valve(IPR valve did come from Ford) just to be on the safe side. Thought I would be good for a while. Wrong!
