Local 7.3 powerstroke mechanic

Hey guys,
Sometime ago I posted a message regarding a "ticking sound" in my 1996 7.3 powerstroke. Yesterday towing my boat to the coast, it became louder, then came a clanking sound, and than brought us to a stop..I believe there is water in the oil and steam coming out the exhaust..It is not looking good for the old girl! I'm looking to find the best powerstroke mechanic in the Portland to Longview area..any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have had some work done on my 96 F250 at Northside Ford in PDX. Easy to work with and very knowledgable diesel techs, with no repeat issues after work was finished.

Looks as if I have a cracked block according to local ford mechanics. Looking to purchase a Long block or drop-in with high performance injectors, and oil pump...Any suggestions regarding locating such a motor?

Hey guys,
I have a 1996 F350 dump with 7.3 powerstroke.
It hade a leaking oil cooler. I had someone rebuilt the old one.
When he put it back together, he cut one of the inner o rings.
About five miles down the road, it over heated and blew out the coolant tank.
I had oil in the coolant and coolant in the oil. I put a brand new cooler on.
Flushed the oil and flushed the coolant and refilled.
Started and ran about five minutes and died. Started again and ran about one minute and died. Now won't start at all. I replaced the fuel filter (real nasty). Still won't start.
Replaced the fuel pump. Same results. Any ideas? Thanks Gary
