    Yep, it's the fuel cooler. From what I understand to truly drain it you have to disconnect two fittings at the lower cooler itself. It's not part of the regular engine cooling system so it has to get flushed separately.

    And it's definitely not a stupid question...I didn't even know about the fuel cooler until I hooked up gauges and the alarm started going off because the fuel temp was too high!

    hey t funk I asked you a few questions in the past and you were helpful so here goes ...what is the coolant cap up near my master cly and I don't mean the degas bottle I mean the one with the small half turn radiator style cap ....
    this 6.4 stuff is new to me I am used to gmc gassers
    I was thinking its a oil cooler or a fuel cooler I am getting ready to change the coolant it came to me with and was wondering if I flush this out while I have the coolant out ...... I have many many things I am doing to the truck before winter
    and I do all my own work ( aside from machine work) on all my work trucks so there is only one person to blame and I know what I did and didn't do right or wrong ...... so I may have a few more stupid questions about some of this 6.4 stuff until I get it down

    thanks in advance

    Thanks for all the help. My passenger upper is out because the dust seal is gone. So I figured I'd do them all at the same time so the front end would be good for a while. The truck still drives great, but definitely don't want to drop the money on new tires only to have one start a weird wear pattern because of a worn ball joint... If you run across the part numbers anywhere in the next month or two, would please send them to me? I'm up in Canada working, so I won't be back to work on the truck until the end of March. Thanks again for the help!

    Sounds good, looks like both axle seals for each side, 4 ball joints, and a couple tools from my best friend. Do you remember replacing the seal that is in the axle housing? I have heard that one can be a bear to get removed and a new one in? Not sure if it's the same for the super 60. No worries if you can't remember, it can't be terribly hard to figure out as I go lol. Do you know what brand ball joints you used and whether you have had good luck out of them?

    Thanks again for all the help!

    I have an 08 F450 that I bought this past fall, and one of the issues that needs attention in the near future (before it gets a new set of tires) is at least the passenger side ball joints replaced. The upper lost the dust seal and has some play in it now. I saw where it looked like you did the ball joints on your truck. All the info I can find just describes doing ball joints on regular Dana 60s. Would you happen to have a list of parts that need replacing and any noted differences between this axle and a regular 60 when it comes to doing ball joints? For the regular 60, they say replace the hub o-rings, and inner and outer axle seals, but is this necessary if care is taken when disassembling? Any insight is appreciated! Thanks
