I noticed there was a pretty bad oil leak on this thing, just documenting my repairs because there is litterally no info online about these trucks
For searching reasons for people in the future:
*** VT275, International CF600, 4.5L powerstroke diesel, Ford LCF550, navistar cf600 cab over truck crank no start ***
Hopefully this will provide some helpful advise.
i took off the oil filter / fuel filter housing today.
found the leak on the O rings were the housing mates with the motor.. all 3 o rings are damaged leaking oil.
I suspect this may cause similar problems that a missing oil filter drain back plug would cause. It definitely would make it more difficult for the LPOP
to feed the filter and HPOP
system with a big leak like this. - I have to wait until monday to buy some new o rings from a specialty supplier locally.
I discovered the oil filter housing is different than the 6.0L s , but the blue spring kit WILL WORK
with this motor. you just wont use all the parts because its slightly different.
I also discovered the fuel pressure sensor finger tight and one of the fuel feed lines finger tight..... I'm thinking it was sucking major air.
