I have done the Jack up test. None of my jacks would lift the back of the truck. Bobcats wouldn't lift either. So buddy came over with crane and lifted it, no good. Problem is not pickup tube. I tore down the lpop today and found the problem. Truck never seem to have the right amount of power and sometimes the oil pressure for engine wouldn't build up as fast as it should on cranking.
So I tore it down today and found that the rotors had some major damage on it. There was a gouge out of it and some MAJOR scoring in timing cover. Ford wants $875 for new cover and I found one used that I would have to pull out of the truck to find that it may or may not be good. I searched some more and found a cover for $65. New pump gasket and cover $250.
Thanks for help, hope this works.
