Ford 7.3L Powerstroke Oil Leak: Turbo Pedestal Seal Replacement

Now these are one of the most common oil leak spots on the 7.3L. While it may look buried they are actually the second easiest turbo to remove in the powerstroke family, In this video I walk you through the procedure to replace the turbo pedestal seals and get that leak stopped the right way. Hope this helps.

Thanks for this. I've got to do this on my truck. It leaves a teaspoon of oil everywhere it stops, and it was worse in my tune that had aggressive EBP valve actuation.

Yeah I have to say go for it, it is actually a very easy job but can leave such an oily mess.
