I'm not sure, I'm thinking a reman pump.

Anyone know a good site to buy a kit off of for a good price? Not looking to purchase thru a dealer. This is incase there are no leaks under the valve covers. I drained the oil until it showed full. So it is ends up rising ill have to take it to the mechanic on Thursday so he can double check for leaks under the valves, if that turns up clean then it has to be the HPFP seal, right? Just wanna be prepared

This is do not have an answer for, all I know if that it was replaced with the shortblock about 15k miles ago. So it's new in the sense of being abused/mileage. I'm just pissed about getting all the lines/sensors replaced under the valve covers and STILL the truck is creating oil in the crankcase. Like I said I plan on dropping it off Thursday so he can remove the valve covers to double check his work, but am I looking at the HPFP being the only other alternative if under the valve covers check out ok? Trying to be prepared if that's the case, any reliable sites to order a kit off of that would be cheaper then FORD? Love the truck, but this blows... What are the odds that both locations are leaking, unbelievable

Oh and BTW, I've done plenty of research and it seems that you can really identify a leaky HPFP seal, so if the covers check out OK then its got to be the HPFP, right?

Can anyone help me out with locating a shaft seal kit/oring for the HPFP, the pump is still good but obviously the seal is leaking fuel into the oil. Does anyone make a kit for this, makes no sense to buy a whole new HPFP is just the seal is bad, right?

Find a place that sells skf seals or Timken bearings, no auto one isn't going to help you. Typically it'll be an industrial type store. Take the pump to them and they can measure and look up the seal you need based on the size. I'd ask for viton material or something that is designed for fuel and high heat. A double lip seal is sufficient. I have done this before but I don't have a part number.

So the diesel mechanic got a hold of me and stated there were NO leaks under the valve covers and decided to drain the oil to do a low pressure test on the HPFP. It ended up consistently dripping when he ran the test so he's pulling the cab to get the pump tested. Worst case scenario came true . Hopefully its just the seal and not the whole HPFP (15k miles old). With the symptoms what do you think I'm looking at here, just a new seal? truck ran perfectly fine so I would assume the pump is still good?

Thanks,

Good luck finding a tech that will warranty changing the seal. Way to much liability for engine damage if it failed.

Actually have a mechanic who is currently working on the truck, cabs off and the pump is a an injection shop being tested, and he warranty's his work for a decent amount of time/miles. There was a consistent drip from the oil plug when the low pressure was forced on. Situation does suck because I got everything under the valve covers sealed up two weeks BEFORE this....
