Exclamation Help! Oil spouts on HP oil rails

I have an 03 engine that has a major leak from the base of the swivel spout in the oil rail. The leak is so bad it will not start when hot. I have been unable to uncover any info from Ford or International as to any other options than a complete replacement rail. Ford quoted me $900 for the one rail and International quoted $800. Is there a socket to remove these plugs and a seal kit availible? The International diagram gives dimensions of the O-ring and lists it as a #118 O-ring. It seems down right crazy to spend so much on a complete replacement part when the only problem is one O-ring. I have searched online and in forums with little result. Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Help! Oil spouts on HP oil rails

There is a tool to remove the HP oil lines. I bought one and it works for the HP oil lines at the heads and at the HPOP. I do not know of a socket to remove the plugs. Most of that stuff is just metric fittings. I unplugged some of that stuff when I replaced my HPOP to see how it went together and I just used basic metric socket set. I do not know of a o-ring kit. I talked to ford dealership and they only sell the standpipes or oil rail. It really blows because its not the rails or lines that fail usually, but the o-rings. I am not 100% of the location of your oil leak. I will see if I have some pictures when I pulled my stuff apart to see if that might help.

I agree, Mcmaster has a huge selection of o-rings in a variety of materials as well.
