NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

Sorry, no big horsepower from this one...but we still thought this product was pretty darn cool. The website explains it in more detail, but in short...it's a true solution to the leak problems with the factory dipstick adapter and it eliminates the need to remove the engine/oil pan to repair the leak properly.

For what it's worth, the hardest part of the install will be removing the nut from a stock adapter with messed up threads or that has been "fixed" before with silicone or epoxy. Once the stock junk has been removed, installation (and removal should it need to be serviced) is fast and easy, requires no special tools and never requires removal of the engine or oil pan.

Re: NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

looks good, but the price seems high for the machining involved, maybe I'm missing something.

Re: NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

IH Has made a repair kit for many years that repairs leaking adapters for a fraction of that price.

There is more than machining involved in product pricing. First, you don't see all of the parts in the pictures on the website. Second, development costs and overhead play into pricing as well. The product is also being made in relatively small quantities right now because we've got no idea how sales will go...if we can get to a point where we are ordering in large quantities, pricing will hopefully drop.

Yup, and it leaves the stock adapter in the pan. We've seen those adapters deformed where the o-ring won't seal, seen the threads stripped, etc. What do you do then?

Yup, it stays in the bottom of the sump. Pricing addressed above.

Re: NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

sucks overhead is that high, It seems like because the right way includes pulling the motor, as long as this costs less then that,people might buy it....just my opinion.

Re: NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

It costs WAAAAAYYYYY less! AllData quotes R&R of the engine at 11 hours (not including any parts or parts swapping). Not sure what shop labor rates are like where you are at...but that's spendy anywhere you go. Your truck is also down while the work is done, 1-2 days in someones shop if they work on it non stop. So, for $350 (regular price) and an hour in the shop (or your driveway), you can be fixed and back on the road...big difference.

Re: NEW! - 7.3L Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit

I like your product and if i ever have an issue that the IH Kit that is less then 100 bucks wont work on i will give your idea a shot, However in say 30-40 i have done the IH Kit worked fine. Oh yeah you are to remove the O'ring in the repair kit and as long as the internal adapter isnt broke deformed does not matter

Thanks Travis
