The first 9K+ I ran standard Motorcraft 10w-30 dino oil. Attached are my results of the first two changes. <img src="https://www.powerstroke.org/forum/images/Powerstroke_org_2015/smilies/tango_face_glasses.png" border="0" alt="" title="Nerd" class="inlineimg" />
I plan on doing an oil analysis after my second oil change with the shaeffers just to make sure I get all the original oil filtered out for the most part. So it’s going to be a bit since I don’t rack up the miles on my mistress.

So 10w 30 is a better option vs 5w 40 if truck is not a heavy hauler?

10-30 is the non-severe oil recommended by Ford. 5-40 is recommended for severe as defined by:
  • Frequent or extended idling (over 10 minutes per hour of normal driving).
  • Low-speed operation/stationary use.
  • If vehicle is operated in sustained ambient temperatures below -9F (-23C) or above 100F (38C).
  • Frequent low-speed operation, consistent heavy traffic less than 25 mph (40 km/h).
  • Operating in severe dust conditions.
  • Operating the vehicle off road.
  • Towing a trailer over 1000 mi (1,600 km).
  • Sustained, high-speed driving at Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (maximum loaded weight for vehicle operation).
  • Use of fuels with sulfur content other than ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD).
  • Use of high-sulfur diesel fuel.

I have a few on those list so 5w-30 will stay in. I received my first Blackstone, which was residual T6 with new Schaffer and Arch oil. Forgot to change it Hot so I will see this next one with just Schaffer and Arch what kicks out with the report.

Thank you for the correction. Also to note I have not experienced the typewriter tick that some have. I may go back to MC 10w-30 to save a few $$ long term.

Anyone else have a very small yet annoying leak with the motor craft filters

No matter how much i tighten filter it seems to continue this after bringing engine to full temp for a few hours.

Make sure you are getting the old filter gasket off the filter base. That picture seems like you need to use some pre-workout before you install that filter.

I let Ford do the first oil change on mine since I had it in for some recall work anyway. The filter looked about like yours after a while. I changed it the last time and it's fine. I've got about 10% left on the oil life meter and this is what it looks like.

I fell victim to the old gasket sticking on the mount the first time I changed the oil. This is the third Oil change and the first time I am having this issue but I did confirm the old gasket came off and the mounting surface was clean and the new gasket had a good bit of oil on it during install. This is my first diesel and it seems that I have to use an abnormal amount of torque when seating the new filter.
