Turbo Pedestal EBPV leaking oil-----switch to non-EBPV pedestal???

OK, cleaned the motor and looks like I tracked my oil leak to the Turbo pedestal where the EBPV rod comes out.

Thoughts on just replacing the factory pedestal with one of those that does not incorporate the EBPV. Are there any sensors that would be effected? I'm using the stock turbo. Motor is a 2001 7.3 with 204,xxx miles.

I'm in northern Illinois, so it does get cold, but this is my backup truck, so I'm not to concerned about the engine warm up issues with eliminating the EBPV. The other option is to buy and install EBPV piston rebuild kit. Sure would be easier to just swap out the pedestal.

Any one else switched over to the non-EBPV pedestal? Or am I better off doing the piston rebuild?

Thank you,

Joe

Joe, if you are not worried about warm up issues then to me switching to a non-EBPV pedestal is easier than the rebuild kit. You might also want to change out the outlet to the Non EBPV outlet flange and do away with the EBPV flapper. I haven't done this yet but will soon. The parts are in the mail.
