03 Motor Question.

I have a 03 (02/03) F-350 and its about to go in for a lot of work ^_^. My question is I looked around and all of the dummy plug/stand pipe/turbo pipe and oil line are 04 and up. Am I mistaken or does these parts not work on my truck? Sorry I'm still learning.

That's correct. the '03-early '04 have different oil rails and stand pipes, so you don't need the dummy plugs. The stand pipes should still be replaced if you are removing the old ones. The updated turbo feed line won't work on the '03 unless you've changed your oil cooler to the one with the updated cover.

I know it doesn't have dummy plugs because of the straight style oil rails......but it should have stand pipes shouldn't it. I know my 03 did, I replaced them.

My early 04 didn't, the dummy plug is a cover for the extra hole on the oil rail, because the oil rail is interchangeable to each head. If you have a standpipe, you should have a dummy plug also. 03-early 04, have the old syle oil rail, that are connected with high pressure oil lines.

Yea, mine has the old style left and right specific rails, and the braided lines. But the braided lines snap to connect to a stand pipe that runs thru the head and screws into the high pressure "manifold" in the block.
One if my stand pipes came out fine when I did my head studs, the other one twisted befor it broke loose, so it prolly wouldn't be a bad idea to buy a set if taking the heads off.

I'll see if I have the part number for them at home.
