1999 F250 first 7.3L

Picked up a diesel again finally! Got this 99 late build 7.3 couple weeks ago. Changed all fluids n filters minus coolant, need to order few more parts.

Does need brakes bad... Gonna go with ford rotars from sunrise and generic pads since I don't tow very much at all.

After that I need to address a Vaccum leak or defective part, either pump, reservoir, solenoid etc. the ac and heat wrok great just stuck on defrost haha.


Also the doors and stuff seal, but anyone ever stick any thicker padding to tighten up the fit with the suicide doors. When you close them they won't move or rattle, but going down a bumpy road it's not bad but not up to my standards haha. More picks soon stuck in Denver til tomkrrow

Also...
I was gonna stick with green coolant and the sca addative, but with a build date of 2/99 I was thinking doing the cat ELC like I did with my previous 6.0.

So I was thinking:

-4 gal of zerex cat elc, ton of distilled water. I'm not doing a chemical just tons of drains and refills til it's clear and clean.
-Thermostat and gasket
-billet thermostat housing and gasket
-dual alternator hose

Someone said I have the early 99 front end, but the late engine. Should I get more numbers from engine or something to make sure?

Front end has nothing to do with the L99 engine build.

Door badges actually have nothing to do with the year either. I've seen e99 have fender badge and 2000 have it. My e99 has the door badge.

I think it's just Fords production planners getting rid of excess inventory. Lol.

From research seems you are correct. I leave Denver in couple
Hours I'll see if I have the round or squarish u bolts up front.

Also I read a lot about how I can swap the hub assembly and rotors to a late 99 version. With that being said...

1. Do I need to change out calipers and pads too? Or would it go like this.

Remove old hubs,rotors, install late models and pads/calipers are irrelevant?

2. I have rear disk breaks (thought it was odd for a 99) do I need to leave e99 rotors there or will I need to do custom work to swap to late models?

Well ordered new rotors and pads for front and rear. Probably fasted $423 I spent in a long, long time lol... I'll be sure to show you had bad the current rotors are when I take them off. Makes me wonder why the previous owner cared so much about fluids and filters but ignored the brakes.

After that I'll be doing the cat elc swap.


For that I'll need:
4gal elc
Tons of distilled water
Thermostat/gasket
Dual alt hose

Is it a good idea for the billet thermo gasket housing or is that just a shiny want?

yes get the billet housing don't bother with an aftermarket thermostat though. Use a good layer of rtv with the new housing and make sure you have a square oring.

Billet housing is nice. I agree with the 203* stat. I don't really like my oil temps getting 240* heavy towing. Stick with the 185*
