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! Contents of the Strictly Diesel Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit. Billet Aluminum Adapter (US Sourced T6061). Machined Steel Backing Plate/Brace (1018 Cold Rolled Bar Stock).

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. Strictly Diesel Dipstick Repair Adapter Kit - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS. Q : Do I have to remove the engine and/or the oil pan to install this part? A : No, this Dipstick Adapter installs from the OUTSIDE of the oil pan and does NOT require removal of the engine or the oil pan for installation or service.
Q : How do I get the factory part out of the oil pan when installing this Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit? The interior portion of the factory dipstick adapter stays in the oil pan. Q : Can the factory part that is left in the oil pan cause any engine damage? The factory dipstick adapter will sink to the bottom of the pan and have nowhere to go.
The only possibility for any issues with regard to the part in the bottom of the oil pan would be in the case of the engine being operated upside down (a situation that more than likely means that you've got bigger problems than whether the engine continues to run or not). Q : How does the Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit work? A : This Dipstick Adapter has a rear support brace that goes in through the opening of the oil pan and is swiveled into place during the installation. The 2 screws visible in the photograph above are used to retain that support brace and pull it tight against the interior wall of the oil pan, which compresses the 2 o-rings against the outside wall of the oil pan and creates the seal.Q : Is there any drilling or modification to the oil pan required? A : No, there is absolutely no modification to the factory oil pan required to install this Dipstick Adapter. Q : Does this product include installation instructions? This product is no different.
