Keeping my fingers crossed and throw some new front brake pads on the dually today
Ahhh, you're talking about the dipstick adapter. I thought you had an oil pan problem. Yeah you can do the dipstick (carefully) without dropping the pan.

Thanks for the link. I have read Guzzels stuff a lot and he has very thorough write ups.

If I do add my homebuilt catch can it will be at the front. I'd like to keep the hose as short as possible. I may even be able to cut the riffraff one shorter and mount the can in the engine bay or just a bit down. any pressure from the ccv can cause leaks. I believe the last time I looked I may even be able to mount it on the firewall depending how the hose/mount goes. If I add a catch can i'll share pics. I got everything for the catch can at north40 its similar to tractor supply. Maybe $25. Just a one inch line strainer then I stuffed the screen with steel wool to help reduce the oil mist that passes through. We'll see how it all goes though.

We checked, re-checked and checked again but didnt find any leaks after the install
It's the one that seals the bleed line to the FPR. It gets squeezed when you tighten down the compression nut and gets mis-shapen.

Replaced the front brake pads on the dually, it went kinda smooth. I had a hard time getting a slide pin out, when I did it had a rubber piece on the end, then the other side also had one but the rubber piece was lodged inside the bracket. Ended up putting it back together without these rubber bushing since they wouldn't go back in, I guess I'm okay, but part of me says get new slide pins.

Ford has a caliper slide pin upgraded part number but it only works on certain years.

Guzzle shows what to look for it could help you. Also it was my mistake but I learned the hard way. Less is more with slide pin grease. I used to much thinking it will only help more to reduce the chances. it didn't. It creates a vacuum and makes the slide pins not slide as easy out lol. I took them off cleaned them and only used a LITTLE BIT this time and whalla!

I know many are smarter than me but just in case anyone was like me before lol.

I read the Guzzle article, and then looked them up on Amazon and people are having fitting issue's. My 01 F-250 which I just did the brakes a few weeks ago the slide pins did not have the rubber seal, I really don't understand the change, these pins where stuck that had the seal and the others came right out. I would prefer the pins without the rubber sleeve on the end, so what make them any better than ones without??

Thanks guys
