    Hello all. Just thought I'd share. I tackled my 6leakers rotted oil pan and rusty trans lines today. Every damn bolt needed a turbo socket to get it out...pain in the azz! I painted the new oil pan and lines with rustoleum gloss black with a paintbrush the week before. 3 coats should help the pan and lines last a little longer.

    If by "brake" lines, you mean the trans lines, my employee cost was 55.00 just for the ones from the trans up the external filter. I think retail they are somewhere around $115.00, not sure but somewhere around there. My lines weren't leaking but were pretty cancerous. Best time to change them is when the oil pan is out....can't get em in there otherwise. (You can but it won't be pretty)

    Damn your truck looks mint on the outside. Do you have any pictures of the old oil pan? I'm curious to see how rusty it was. I don't think mine was rusty the last time i looked under the truck.

    That trucks barely rusted. I did back brakes on my 99 - 5.4 today. Every where I look there is rust. It would be so nice to have a lift.

    Ha ha.. Two months ago I went to use my Ebrake....it went right to the floor. I drove it for a few weeks till I had time to fix it. Turns out the backing plates rotted through and the shoe pins came out. The backing plate fell apart in my hands. Ford has complete backing plates....$$$. just install the Ebrake cable and install a new seal for the full floating axle. Good to go.

    I still have the pan. I forgot to take a picture of the old one in place... I got engrossed in getting out the rotted bolts. (Thank god for turbo sockets!) It was rotted on the lowest part, right side of the bubble. 1-1.5 qts every 50 miles it was leaking.

    That's funny!
    I found that I have no parking brake parts left. The last ****** that owned it removed it all.
    The only thing there is, are little levers floating in the water seal. Not even hooked to the cables. The backing plates are so rusted the shoes would hang up. One is not square to the caliper bracket. Looks like big fun to change them out. Pull axles, new seals, totally rusted bolts and nuts. I bought the hardware kit, must be missing important parts.
    I love my truck, till I have to work on it! Nothing is easy!

    Ain't that the truth!
    I'm not sure without seeing it in person, but if you bought the complete hardware kit, you may just be missing the adjuster barrel and the mechanical adjuster arm. The kits usually include new pins, springs and holddowns...pretty much everything needed.

    I have the adjuster star wheel. The hold down clips and return springs. No adjuster shoe. Just has no way to engage shoes or a pivot point for the little lever thing connected to cable...My manual shows a vague picture. Went to library,Pro Motors manual shows same picture! Mechanics at work no help!

    Nope just pull motor mount nuts and jack the motor up about 2 inches. That gave just enough clearance.

    so you would really need a lift to do the oil pan to be able to reach everything well. I sure the dealer gets a good $$$ for that .

    You can do it on the ground with a couple ramps and a floor jack with a block of wood. I get 6 hours (+/- 600$ labor) to change a 6 liter oil pan at my dealership. If the bolts aren't rotted, I can have it done in 2 hours. My own pan took almost 6 hours...lol.

    I doing the rear brakes on my truck now and hit a snag as the replacement calipers that I put in a few years ago are now junk and have to get new ones what a way to put a damper on the day.
