Default 7.3L Powerstroke Large Oil Leaks Repair

In this video I go over a common oil leak on the 7.3L. It is one that is often misdiagnosed at least initially as all other oil seepages on the engine go right past this one on their way out the engine valley and down the backside of the engine collecting on the bellhousing. If you have a good oil leak on your 7.3l this would be a good place to start. There is a updated part to resolve the issue and a special Loctite needed and I go over all of that too.

They still sell the kit that comes with the plug as well as the orings? Man I used to change those things on a daily basis, something about the material of the o-rings does not work well with the oil, they disintegrate.

The ones on the front of the head not too bad but those in back, good lord what a PITA.

Hard to believe the 7.3 PS was introduced 20 years ago huh, 1994.5. I spent two weeks in class to get certified on them. Damn I'm getting old fast.
