Figured the head was off, might as well do valve stem seals:
I had one cracked injector cup, so i replaced all 8 just in case
The 7.3 has a two-stage fuel pump in the valley, and uses a single hard line to supply fuel to the back of both heads:
I wanted to replace mine since it has a kink on the passenger side, and the rubber collars behind the nuts are rotted after 24 years. Well, you cant do it with the turbo installed!. It also uses the biggest banjo bolt youve ever seen!
i had to order a set of metric 1/4" drive swivel sockets to get the turbo out, as nothing else will fit in there to remove it. It is god damned tight in there:
That wasnt the worst either. No way to do it w/o them swivel sockets.
Turbo out, new fuel line + pedestal o-rings installed:
...and finally, turbo reinstalled!
Got all that finished up this morning. Weather permitting, monday morning i should be good to start reinstalling the head!
