Re: quick question?

How much is a new o-ring? Most times I try to save a few bucks I end up doing it again for the cheap item. Just my $.02.

Give this fella a call, I bought a turbo reinstall kit a while back and he had fast shipping and was great to deal with. I know he has that o-ring but don't see it listed, take a look and call him. Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines

Re: quick question?

If the o-ring looks good, you can reuse it. I've pulled my spider off at least a half dozen times, and reused the same o-ring each time. No leaks.

I agree, me too but just in case, if it is boogered up, you know where to seek for it...

Put a little dab of grease on it to hold it in place on reinstall.
