    Default Update on '93 Ford F150 oil pan gasket replacement

    Hey Haynes Administrator just wanted to update you on a previous posting of mine about replacing the oil pan gasket on my '93 Ford F150. I tackled this project a couple weeks ago on Labor Day weekend, I purposely chose to do it at that time because it was a 3 day weekend (which it turned out I needed the extra day), it was a success. I've been checking under the truck and so far have not seen anymore oil drips. I would like to add though that I was able to raise the engine without removing the upper intake manifold (plenum) as described in the manual because there was a good 3-4 inches of clearance between the plenum and the firewall. I just kept a close on the intake while I was raising the engine to make sure the plenum didn't hit the firewall. I also replaced the oil pump while I was at it. I took my time and stayed patient yet vigilant and got it done. Now I need to replace the water pump because it has a slow leak as well, I will post any questions that I may have when I get ready to tackle that project. Just wanted to say thanks for your advice.

    oops just wanted to correct a type-o here. "I just kept a close on the intake" should be, I just kept a close eye on the intake while I was raising the engine.

    Thanks for your reply administrator. We've had one hell of a heat wave here in Texas, we set a new all time record of 72 days that were over 100 degrees (the previous record was 69 days set back in 1980), there have have been a few record highs set at 110 degrees. We've finally started seeing our highs drop into 90s making it a little more bearable for doing projects outdoors like this. I would have gotten back to you a little sooner but unfortunately about 5 days after finishing this project my uncle passed away after about a 9 month battle with colon cancer so I've been having to deal with that as well. Any way thank you so much for your help and I may post some questions in the future about replacing the water pump on this truck. Thanks again.

    Cowboy
