    someone once told me "you've never lived until you've pulled a 7.3"

    I've done it. It sucks.

    How's pan holding up to oil leaks? I would have looped silicone around inner side of bolt holes...

    nothing better than pulling a 7.3! Even better when you have to pull the motor back out because of an oil leak caused by accidentally bumping the silicone bead against a main bolt when putting the new pan on and not noticing it happened

    I had a 7.3l that need a new oil pan. I told myself if I ever did it I would replace all the gaskets on the motor and checked injectors and glow plugs. Did you do any of that, or didn't it need it?

    RTV is what they came with from the factory with. Quite often I see someone on a forum that gets the gasket... everyone jumps on that like flies on sh**. I cant count the people who have been saved from using the gasket... As far as the loops on the inside of the bolt holes, I always have, but Im sure it doesnt help all that much. that stuff spreads out pretty well. While everyone has their preference, Im a permatex copper plus man... looks like that might be what you used as well.

    That's a job for sure. Please tell me you ditched the stock down pipe. Lol

    So did you replace the motor or just the cover?
