Angry Oil dip stick Leaking more like flowing

Well I left for work the other day and when I arrived I was having a smoke and got out the truck for one of my co-workers to tell me hey your leaking oil . Sure enough not leaking but flowing from the dipstick at the pan. So its sunday and ford is not open and I will not be getting off until tuesday morning. Napa does not stock or carry the o ring gaskets. Big question is has any one changed this with ot pulling the motor to take off the pan. I read the tech file and the instructions though pretty through did not say sounds like that is what it explained but the picture is of the dipstick and pan off of motor any help is appreciated. it is a 7.3 in a 2000 F450

Is it leaking from between the flange and the pan, or the flange and the dipstick tube?

The dipstick tube takes a small O-ring, and is a VERY easy fix.

The pan takes a large O-ring, but due to this common failure, the "fix" per International and Ford is a flat gasket.

Check out this page for the pan/flange fix.

The dealer will tell you the motor has to come out. It doesnt!

I was able to find an oil-resistant O-ring the proper size, and was able to install it in 20 minutes without removing the motor. Just be sure you have some sort of fail-safe to keep the flange from dropping into the pan.
