The other easy way to see if you getting any glow plug draw is to watch the gauge on the dash at key on engine off . Or go check right off the battery with an voltmeter . It will pull the voltage down. You won't know the amperage , but you'll see a voltage drop . This would be best in cold Temps to see though.
Still has the original HPOP and injectors. They cleaned the engine bay, but the lower coupler on the passenger side showed some oil. The coolant is clean. It was flushed a year ago. I'll still flush it and put in a filter.

But, we are still a ways apart on prices, so IDK if this will happen.

So, I guess until it would need studs put in, I should forget about fixing any oil leaks. Can the bed plate seals be fixed without pulling the motor or the cab?

Also, does the trans need pulled to replace the rear main?
the bedplate is the entire lower half of the engine. its what holds the crankshaft in, so no, it has to be motor out repair. lol

I got a 6.0 reviva in my bay right now with two broken c rods . When I get it out I'll take pictures from below .

Out of all the oil leaks , I think the most I've seen is the oil cooler base leaking .

Another big problem is the egr cooler failing . So much heat through that thing . And also the egr valve getting so dirty.

Diesels sound like a pain in the ass unless you actually need one to tow an enormous amount of weight.

Exactly what happened to a reviva I put in last year. 6k later and 2 rods shot out. I blame it on them reusing rod bolts cause it was clear the heads stretched and let go

This one just got dropped off today. 6 speed. Sounds like it may need a motor, possibly melted piston.

If we can make a deal, I would get a way to monitor eot vs ect to see if there are any obvious problems . But, I doubt I'd see much til next summer. I'm sure after 100k miles, it could use an oil cooler, and I would just do an egr delete at the same time.

I wouldn't even flush it. Do a drain and Fill on both the block and radiator, and install coolant filter. If you flush, more than likely you'll loosen up junk and clog cooler for sure. Install a filter and let it clean the coolant over the course of a year or so. Obviously monitor the deltas and see what they do over time

30 out this morning, and I went there to start it. Kind of rough for 15 seconds or so.

Sounds about right for not being plugged in I think. When is the last time fuel filters were done?

The previous owner changed them every 5k, so most likely less than that.

My last one was quite a bit worse than that. It would probably clear up with rev-x and some 5w-40.

Sounds just like our Diesels when someone forgets to plug it in.

Found another one....
@CTC DEEZUL

What do you think about the bulletproof oil coolers? Will it help much to get the one with the external filter that adds 7 quart capacity to the system?

No thanks. The hose routing is a nightmare and prone for rub throughs. I also like up close direct filtering, not off-site. There is no need for them

Just replace with the Ford then?

Will it still have clogging problems with good coolant and a coolant filter? As in, do I need to plan on replacing it every 100k miles or so?

The key is to flush the system with the old cooler, then install a filter, then within a few thousand change the cooler. Never have an issue unless you abuse coolant
