Yup, many, many 7.3s have been run for 100s of 1000s of miles without them. My last 4 7.3s worked hard and none if them had one. I think it's a matter of "feel good" like additives. Run it if ya want to. More power, blah blah blah. I highly doubt it's gonna make or break the longevity in the long run, but they sure got our money.

That’s not what he said however . He said they didn’t need one because they didn’t come from the factory with it .
However , big however the DT444 has a filter on it from the factory . Ford decided to put their own waterpump on the 7.3 removing the water filter. So I’d be so bold to say they did indeed put it on them for longevity...
that’s my opinion , ymmv

Why not what? Why not use one? It ain't broke....More leak points, more things to keep track of, more expense, more unnecessary crap under the hood. I haven't used one yet in the 15 years of owning 7.3s, don't plan on starting now. If it came with one, fine, but to spend my money/time on something that isn't going to make a real difference, no thanks. I have enough stuff to do ...

Re: Project Shamu Build

Picked up the new rear axle I've been wanting. Got it off craigslist for $100. After scouring the internet for months now, I finally got a decent deal on one. Came with brakes, a VSS, parking brake cables, etc, pretty much fully assembled. Only down side was I didn't know what gearing it had, the tag broke off, and the guy didnt want to pull the cover. So I drove and picked it up last night, spent about $100 in gas getting there lol.




So i popped the cover this morning and counted ring and pinion teeth, its a 3.73 axle, with an open diff. I'm needing 4.30 gears to match my front, so I guess I'll go get it regeared.

Either way, scored.

Re: Project Shamu Build

Got to work on the axle today, stripped it down to inspect it, and I gotta say, I'm impressed for $100.

I started out getting it out of the back of my truck, and being by myself, I was able to just slide it over onto my workbench and get it up on stands.



Then I pulled the brakes off, found the rotors are down to nothing, and pads are trashed, rubber brake lines look pretty scary, and the caliper slide pins are seized. The passenger side parking brake is missing a lot of pieces, like the previous owner robbed some of them for something else, but the shoes are fine, so pretty much all of the brakes are getting replaced.

Then pulled the axle shafts and hubs. The bearings still look great, very clean and no pitting, they're all Timken, so I will just reuse them, but the seals came apart when I removed them, so I'll buy some new ones. Then just cleaned all the oil off of everything and set it aside for reassembly.





Continued...
