1996 7.3L with 216k miles
3" downpipe, 4" exhaust, S&B CAI

Finally having some time to go though this new to me OBS. I knew it had an oil leak when I bought it last week and it looks to be coming down from the valley. Not sure what is what under here yet. A bit different set up than the 6.7 I had. I tried to include some pictures here.

Automotive tire Helmet Motor vehicle Automotive wheel system Tread

Hat Electric blue Linens Bag Pattern

Head Wood Sculpture Water Tints and shades

Auto part Silver Automotive tire Close-up Nail


Planning on getting new Y pipe boots and plenum from Riff Raff.

Is this the HPOP leaking?

Thanks for the help

Watched a few YouTube videos on 7.3 oil leaks. Will start with the pedestal, HPOP lines, intake boots, plenum and up pipes. Hopefully the HPOP is not currently leaking.

Clean as much of the oil up as possible. Then once dry sprinkle some baby powder around and watch it to see if you can see where it is coming from

The first few times I washed my 7.3L, I did it with the engine cool but idling so I could tell instantly if anything was being affected by the water. It wasn't, so after a few plain-water rinses, I started prepping it with dilute Dawn plus PurplePower, waiting a few minutes, and then rinsing until it came this clean.
