Probably.
I recall there being a "updated" part with more clearance.

Sorry to her your clutch/inspection cover is grinding. It wasn't rubbing on the truck it came off of.........hmmmmm did it get bent in shipping you think? I feel bad it caused you more work.
Dude!! Do not even sweat it! Shes on there and no more rubbing. It literally took 2 minutes with a grinder and a pair of pliers to make it fit.
My truck is a 97 diesel engine with a who knows what year 460 Zf5 trans, so I knew the risks
All I had to do was remove about 1/4" from the oil pan "lip" with a grinder, hit that with the belt sander. Made a notch for where the Napa starter goes and it fits perfectly. I spent more time looking for three bolts and lock washers to use for mounting then I did making it fit. I am headed into the woods later today to get firewood with the F350, so having a guard over that rotating mass is very important to me!!
You did an excellent job packaging that stuff, no it did not get bent I am super happy just to have the part! Otherwise I would be making something from scratch.

I think a good grey used drivers door panel might be the most rare of all the parts! If I can find one of those I can make these panels last for a while, the pass one is cracked but no biggie. Drivers is in about 3 pieces all held on with different screws HAHAHAHAHA

My Bronco II took me 15 years to build into a rattle free late model feature having smooth riding Ford truck. This one should take WAAAAAY less time, so far we are kicking some BUTT!!!

Bad news first:
Still major oil leak???? Not sure if I jacked up putting in the rear plug on the HPOP or if I just actually never fixed the right leak?
Cannot see ANYTHING down in there, what a bitch
Will tear the HPOP and fuel bowl off today = PITA


Good news
I'm a happy dude
picked up a flatbed for the F350 today
Freedom 8.5' long srw contractor style all steel was on a 2012 SRW longbed Ford so it SHOULD bolt on. If it does not I will make it so.
I've been after this flatbed for over two months (craigslist) and when I finally got the $$$ (sold atv) it as still there! So I scored!!!
Exactly like this one, barely used!!

8.5' long 7' wide, PERFECT!!!

OKay working on my oil leak
Pretty sure I fixed the fuel leak
Valley is dry
I have nice honey brown oil coming down the drivers side back of the engine.
It is coming down from above the oil cooler
It is leaking down the engine to transmission adapter plate, from somewhere on the back side of the drivers head
Also getting some oil on pass side

Could it be my turbo pedestal or EBPV delete I did? Hard to see back there.
Any tips?
Remove drivers inner fender skirt for a better view?

Dang
Thanks for any help

I think I may have screwed up, Oil leak:

When I deleted my pedestal I did not replace the ebpv solenoid/sensor onto the pedestal
I gutted the plunger and spring from the ebpv actuator
I sealed up the plunger rod hole with a ppipe tap but I did nothing to the solenoid/sensor shaft. Then I did not re install the sensor
Should I have?

Thanks

oil comes up around that stud? Are you 100%?
Thanks so much
I pulled sensor off and using a mirror and flashlight, its dry as a bone underneath!
I had sensor on the stud, in place, but not bolted down.

All I remember in there is a washer sensor washer and then top nut, no O rings
Remember this 97 is diff sensor then the Superduties
I do not think oil comes through that spot!!

I am thinking its the service plugs on back of the heads?

Yeah. That thing works just like the ipr.
I popped the stud out, seen I couldn't plug it. So I put the Solenoid and everything back on to hold it tight.
That's what holds it in.
You could get in there with a inspection mirror.
