Question Dipstick tube on early Mod. 99 PSD

Hey, does anyone out there have a link to an exploded view of,or know how,
the dipstick tube is attached to the side of the pan? I've got an oil leak coming from there and it looks like maybe an 'O' ring has given it up or something. I've tightened about all I feel like I can without strippin' sumpthin' out. Does the pan have to drop in order to be able to acess this???
I would really appreciate any help I can get.:thanks:

To replace the o-ring you have to pull the pan. In order to pull the pan you have to pull the engine. Not a fun or easy fix.

Just asking but... Could you use some gasket maker or such??? Seems like a bad deal to pull for a oil leak there...

Man that's a real bummer! I really don't know why the stupid thing started leaking. I just had this truck in the shop for an injector rebuild, had it back one day and then noticed oil leaking, slowly at first and then within 50 miles a bunch real quick!Called the shop that worked on it and they came out to look and said it just must of picked that time to fail?? Anyway, he tightened it some and told me he wasn't sure but thought the pan had to come off to access the 'O' ring and that probably was a job he didn't want to do. So I took a look at it this weekend and tightened it up about a half of a turn or so and slowed it down a lot,almost stopped it, but was afraid to go much more for fear of strippin' it out. Do you Know if the 'O' ring is on the inside or out side?
Thanks for the quick reply.

O ring is on the inside and to replace it the pan must come off. I would try draining the oil level down, clean it up real good and JB weld it. Let it sit a day or so and then see what happens. I have fiber glassed rotted oil pans before and they held for years. You may want to try this too but any type of repair like this is a maybe and the surfaces must be clean and free from oil for it to hold.

Yea, I was thinkin about J-B Weld, pretty drastic but not as drastic as pullin an engine to change an o ring, Ha! I guess that's one of Fords "Better Ideas" Huh? Well, thanks for the help. It seems to have slowed down a lot and I may just go ahead and see if maybe it will tighten up a little more. If it strips I'll sure enough have to break out the J-b Weld
I appreciate the input:bow:

Well for starters it wasn't Ford's idea at all. It's Internationals. Haven't looked at an IH truck but I would guess it's a lot easier to pull the pan on those. I don't think I'd use JB weld as it's way to permanent. But I do have a buddy that used a bunch of silicone that seems to be holding up fine. Maybe clean it up real good and get some of that IH silicone like what they have you seal the oil pan and intake manifolds with.

Mine started to leak from the dip-tube at the pan, and I used some hightemp silicone (cleaned and sanded the surfaces around the area for good adhesion) a good bit of it and it fixed the problem. I'm not sure how long it would have lasted, because I ran the pickup into a tree a few weeks latter. :sofa

Hey thanks for that info. This thing's started leaking pretty good again so I guess I'ldrain the oil out this weekend and see if I can clan it up good enough for some silicone to stick. Maybe it will fix it? I don't think I'll try the run into the tree trick just yet though.:thanks:
