Bummer. Looks like the engine will have to come out.

You can get all the gaskets EXCEPT for the oil cooler to front cover gasket from International. It's Ford Specific because the oil cooler is mounted at a different angle to clear the crossmember (that's what the guys at Int'l told me.)

You'll need gaskets for the front cover, oil cooler, HPOP, and water pump, and a tube of the special RTV (Motorcraft TA-31) for the oil pan (it doesn't use a gasket.) DON'T try to use plain ol' RTV on the pan and aroung the front cover. You may want a water pump gasket also.

When you put the front cover on, be sure that you have all the oil cleaned away from the sealing surface. Same for the oil pan, and you need to have the engine upside down to install it, and leave it that way at least overnight to cure.

Good Luck

KL what is the website? i tried and i am getting no where. rockauto has a kit for $36 to my door, but the res gasket does not have a filter screen. when i started to pull it apart i found sludge and metal filings, not enough to worry about; just extra protection. the same kit with the screen is $60-70+. the water pump i think i can leave in place. the kit looks like it has all seals except water pump, i would like to leave it in place cause it 's not leaking.
OH, AND THE GOOD PART IS; I CAN SCRAP THE OLD PUMP AND COVER AND GET SOME MONEY BACK. also i got a lpop in the deal and it is hardly even scrached: what is that #80+ so between these two i figure i saved over $300 from buying new.

If you mean a website for Ford parts, you can use Tousley, which sells parts at a discount from list. Tousley Ford Parts Depot
Or the Ford "official website Official Ford Parts Site | Buy Motorcraft & OEM Ford Parts Online | FordParts.com

There are two different gaskets for the HPOP reservoir, and you can't interchange them. The earlier front covers have just an o-ring type groove, but the one that uses the screened gasket doesn't have the inner land (toward the inside of the gasket). If you put a screened gasket on a front cover that uses the non-screened gasket and tighten it down, something will break. I've seen kits that have both gaskets included. What I'd do is get the inner land machined off so the screened gasket can be used.

Some of the water pump bolts go all the way thru the front cover, as I recall, so you'll at least have to remove those bolts (not sure which ones they are. I could try and drag out the spare front cover and look, but you should be able to figure that out when you take the broken front cover off.

i was just looking at youtube and found out about the screen. so i might have cracked it. if i am careful can i take that edge out myself?? would that (wrong gasket) cause my oil consumption? i.e. using a lot oil? my oil problems did not start untill i had to fix truck. i was also thinking ,since i'm in there to drill out my banjo? fuel bolts; or should i leave those alone? i was taking international, it would be int right? not ford

If you were careful, you could probably use a dremel tool to take the land off. It should work OK as long as you don't put a big gouge in it.

I wouldn't drill out the fuel plugs. I think that's a bad idea that would weaken them and won't do much to help fuel flow. Unless you're seriously modifying the fuel system, it won't help the flow compared to the existing 1/4" fuel lines.

If you cracked the reservoir, that would start spurting oil out pretty seriously, as the LP oil pump puts out up to 70 psi. As long as the gasket sealed, it wouldn't cause oil consumption (burning it in the combustion chambers.)

The whole engine mount brackets come out with the engine. Those nuts you see on the bottom of the crossmember are what you want to remove. The studs are fixed to the brackets themselves, so you don't need a backup wrench on top. The holes they go thru are slotted so you can get the engine aligned properly.

That's a lot easier than trying to get the engine at just the right height so you can shove that long bolt through as you lay upside down across the legs of a hoist. BTDT too many times to count.
