    @Raider i just ordered parts to do the same shit on my Pu. Been pissing Ford Jizz for a bit. Tasca said national back order on bearings, but seals are plentiful along with the whole plate assembly with everything in it. Luckily not the end of the world.

    My thoughts too. No blue. So was thinking....did he use blue or ? Then redline gear lube is close to that color. Was going to offer up my seal. So if too long to get yourself.
    Let me know will send it ASAP.

    After 3 months, the speed is in the shop. 1 axle boot cracking. New DTA axle ordered. Serpentine belt is trash. Power steering pump bolts to subframe exited chat. Power steering lines are harder than a guy at senior prom. Pivot shaft seal looks bad still. Seal and vent going in. The oil leak of doom is probably solved. Injector seals and o rings seems to fix that. Coolant reservoir is spidering and needs replacement before it shatters. Oh and after maybe 3 years, skid tray going on after all this. Will be spending time making sure everything is safe. Then off for new tires. Will book a couple hours of dyno and a hot date with Will to finish the tune and enjoy.

    Wrap on roof is 10 years old and will need replacement. Only put off 3 years.

    Hopefully I can finally enjoy it.

    Well not the update I wanted to post, but it appears the head gasket is leaking oil out of the block under the injectors. Tech will be cleaning it Tuesday and checking again. But it's probably the oil leak from forever. So the plan will be head gasket, head bolts. Timing chain, and might as well do rods and pistons. Get the block bored out a little. But most everything else is done.

    Fuck.

    You sure it's not the PCV plate seal?

    It's about time once of us goes built.

    I know you have a bunch, but if you need any spare parts that you don't find in your attic let me know. Might even have a BSD kit, but I know you always said you wanted to keep the balance shaft.

    I trashed everything I didn't give away before the move actually! Keeping the balance shaft for sure. Getting new stuff on the motor for sure tho.

    Crankshaft bearing cradle bolts were on Tasca backorder since Jan, gave up in May. Hopefully that changed. Main bearings if upgrade... sadly unobtainable King racing pMax since Thanksgiving. Rod bearings are available though. I hope parts are going into stock, was a painful daily experience to find backorder, update, scheduling of parts since I was building new motor from January. Took 3 months and still had to measure and select my used 2 set of main bolts to get best ones. Talking to Graveyard was told they stay stock on their build setups.

    I did for 50K miles, but it was getting progressively worse. Oil and crap was so bad
    Going to get a list of parts needed. Good think working at a dealership I get a break on OEM parts.

    No seriously just check the oil. It's not going to blow up from an oil leak

    Or fuck it just rtv the whole joint between the head and block
