Product description
As the 7.3L trucks get older, oil pan leaks get more and more common. One of the most frequent sources of oil pan leaks is from the factory dipstick adapter in the side of the oil pan. We've seen a number of interesting repairs on the stock dipstick adapter, most involving some sort of sealant like silicone...and some even involving epoxy type products like JBWeld. We've also seen the dipstick adapter nut over-tightened to the point of distorting the adapter inside the pan (in such a way that it would never seal again, even with a new o-ring).

Whether you've got an oil leak now, or you're building a new engine and don't want to deal with one in the future, this Dipstick Adapter Repair kit is the once and for all solution! This kit completely eliminates the stock dipstick adapter, replacing it with a new machined aluminum adapter that features a double o-ring seal on the OUTSIDE of the oil pan. This kit can be installed with the oil pan still on the engine, and the engine still in the truck. Best of all, if the o-rings in this kit should ever leak, this adapter can be quickly and easily removed and reinstalled with new o-rings...all from outside the oil pan!

T444E CUSTOMERS : This repair adapter has been used by a number of T444E owners with the same success as we have had on the Ford Powerstroke applications. To date, the only issue we have heard of was a school bus with a starter that was so large it interfered with the adapter, and that customer simply installed a smaller starter to solve the problem. To the best of our knowledge, this adapter should fit all T444E applications...but to be clear, we are not a Heavy Duty shop and we don't work on that engine. There are no T444E vehicles in the selector above, so if you are needing to order for that type of engine, simply click the "If you know your part number click here" link that is located below the Make/Model/Year selector.
