Engine Replacement

OK, I've done just about everything else to this truck BUT pull the engine. After low compression numbers and lots of blow by I've sourced a used replacement.

I'm re o ringing the Oil Cooler, Doing Up Pipe donuts, The HPO plugs, and injector o rings. I'll be re using my HPOP, ICP, Turbo, and such from my existing engine.
I also have new motor mounts, water pump, and low pressure oil pump.

So, are there any tips on removing and replacing a 7.3 in a OBS? It's an auto truck.

Thanks in advance, I'll try and take pics as I go along, but doing it myself in a gravel driveway, I may not have that much time to take pics

Re: Engine Replacement

If the oil pan is rusty I would put a new one on, other than that it looks like you got all of it.

Oil pan looks good, The engine is overall dry. Some crud, but no signs of oil leaks. I did redo the oil cooler today, I'm going to sand blast the manifolds, upipes and turbo mount tomorrow. I'm also doing new glow plugs, and Injector O rings.

With a little dry weather I should be ready to pull Friday and put back Saturday.

just put in gaskets for the manifolds. stock they dident have gaskets but they should have. they go bad after a while so sure sand blast them gently then re install with gaskets, otherwise you are going to have exh leaks right quick and in a hurry. also put new brass gaskets in for the up pipes. trust me. you can get them from beans.

Picked up a set of gaskets from Ford today, I also had a chance to blast the manifolds, up pipes, and turbo flange.

Still raining, supposed to let up soon, and I'll get them back together and get the injectors out for some new orings!

Re: Engine Replacement

And ITS DONE, started Saturday morning, took Sunday off and worked all day Monday, If it hadn't been for a pinched Turbo ped o ring It would have been running last night!

All in all not a bad job, although nothing I plan on doing anytime again soon!
