Piston pin question

How is the piston pin held in on 7.3? is it press fit or with a clip???

I would like to pull my engine out and change my rods next oil change...

Thanks a million

@ doing it "next oil change"

Re: Piston pin question

I figure I dont even open my hood for less than $1000 anymore... hehehehe... I have put 1000 KMs on it since I last changed the oil, so in 4000KMs more I will pull it out....

Well next question... who has the best deal on head studs???

Re: Piston pin question



Is that just regular maintenance for a PMR motor?
