I noticed a few days ago that my oil was a little low. I brought it up to middle of the hash Mark's. Maybe a quart or 3. Checked it this morning and it's no longer on the stick.

Not sure what massive oil consumption precludes to. Read a few post and one of the things is injector o-rings. The truck leaks a drop or two now and then but not much. There is a slight smoke at start up but I do not notice it after that

Over the weekend I replaced the orings on the injectors. I hope it fixes the oil consumption problem. My truck was starting to make a weird almost hollow clunk on startup.

That seems to have gone away after the injectors and glow plugs.

However the original noise is still there while accelerating. It goes away if you lift your foot and accelerate again. I noticed the truck dosent seem to make the noise if it's in neutral. But soon as you put it in gear there is a noticeable noise difference by the bell housing... Flex plate maybe?

Sorry for the delayed response but that is a grey CPS. There are aftermarket CPS of a similar color so I can’t swear it is a genuine IH/Motorcraft; however, the moldind design does appear similar to the genuine shape rather than aftermarket.

Never hurts to buy a spare from Ford and keep it in your glove box with a 10-mm wrench.

Will definitely grab one in the near future and toss it in the truck box. I keep a small tool box for just in case stuff.

Now my concern seems to be the noise coming from the bell housing area. Pretty sure the noise in the original video while accelerating is coming from there

I may be worth doing a careful check of the entire exhaust system front to back (under) for any cracked pipes, hangers, and connections. Experienced a similar rpm-dependent noise on the wife's diesel sedan...turned out to be a crack where an exhaust hanger was welded to the pipe. The pipe was cracked diagonally and 1/2 of the circumference, almost like a 1/2 spiral...would only rattle around 1800 rpm. It took using a small crow bar to tension the hanger/pipe connection before the crack was visible, manually all felt tight. Hopefully its nothing major

Ford has a Breakout box but you could make a custom valve cover injector harness to disable the injectors 1 by 1. Will be time consuming but not really any other easy way.
Ended up sending the truck to a shop. They called me earlier to let me know I'm pegging the mag gauge (blow by) and that the motor is reached. SOB $$$$

The quote they gave me for a long block installed is more then I paid for the truck. I love the truck but now need to figure something out

You could check around for a used engine. They are out there. Be sure to check it over before you buy. Things like intake tract for grit, turbo for loose bearings, etc. That's what I did when I had a cracked block, and it's been doing fine for many miles now.

Just curious, how many miles on your engine? I was told the same thing back when my engine had about 450,000 mi. It currently has 997,478 mi. on it and it still ran really well considering the mileage only now am I putting my spare engine in it. I should have mine back on the road the 1st of may. When I bought my 95 from the original owner in 2005 it had 103,000 mi. when I removed the oil fill cap it had always blew a little smoke and I was told that was the nature of the beast it stayed that way until about 2008 and 450,000 mi. and it got a little worse but, nothing that I was to concerned about but, that's when the shop told me I needed a new engine. Now that i'm almost at a million miles it is blowing more smoke than I would like. LOL With the engine running I can remove my oil fill cap turn it upside down and put over the oil fill hole and it will blow the cap off but, I can't ***** that engine owes me nothing. The couple times that my engine made a similar noise under load was a cracked flex plate but, you already ruled that out. The other time was my exhaust back pressure valve sticking partially closed so, I disconnected the valve and wired it open and took it for a drive to see if noise went away which it did. I left it that way for a couple months until I could do the exh. back pressure delete. Good Luck! I hope you can find the cause of the noise.
