Shrapnel in engine oil regulator!?!

Hello, I have been on and off this site for a couple of trouble free years of owning my 05 f250 xlt xcab 4x4.... Bla... Bla. Over the years I have done an egr delete, coolant filter, oil cooler, 4" turbo back strait pipe. The first time in my 19 years of owning ford vehicles I was left on the side of the rd. dead in the water. It was a hpo system leak... Or should I say leaks. Anyhow... After pricing out new upgraded 190s, resealing the hporail, stc, dummy plug/ standpipe update, new turbo/intercooler to feed the injectors with enough cold air ( I regualarily tow 12000+lbs) with a 303000 km engine. I bought a complete engine with 150000 km from a wrecker... I installed a 6 phase bpd ficm at the same time as the engine. It purred like my dreams come true! I made a few test trips all with my scan tool hooked up data logging... Everything was perfect. So Saturday I drive 210km to the city for groceries. Starts fine all day( scan tool hooked up the whole while). When I go to start the truck to leave for home... It starts fine and oil press. registers, when I put it in drive, the needle dropped and the truck stalled out. Only codes were low icp and crank sensor circuit low. After swapping the ckp sensor Everything on scan tool was good;save for icp. So I disconnected the sensor and still no start. I then pulled oil press. Reg. and found a piece of metal in the valve, I then tried to figure it what this piece of metal might be; for the life of me I can't figure it out. If anyone could help me out it'd be muchly appreciated!

Re: Shrapnel in engine oil regulator!?!

I have since overfilled crankcase with oil, jacked up the back and cranked. Still no oil to the filter housing and no oil in regulator after cranking. I have torn into my other engine... Looked at everything above the block deck and have not found anything that looks like this... Is it possibly a piece of the stc fitting?

Re: Shrapnel in engine oil regulator!?!

Hard to say from such a small picture, but regardless, you probably need a new lpop, and possiblt cam and lifters. 6.0's are notorious for breaking lifters, and taking out the lpop and cams

Again, hard to say, but is the base (as it's sitting in the pic) a fracture line? It could be part of a pushrod socket from one of your lifters.. Could be umpteen other things too.

Re: Shrapnel in engine oil regulator!?!

Is there a steel seat for the regulator in the front cover?

Re: Shrapnel in engine oil regulator!?!

and you probably need to reprime the low oil pressure system also... try using some wheel bearing grease in the oil pressure reg. hole(better if you can put the grease right into the low pressure oil pump itself)
