Ford 7.3 leaky dipstick
« on: January 12, 2019, 06:03:02 PM »

Apparently the oil dipstick leaking is a common issue with the Ford 7.3. I've also been told it's rather expensive to have the leak fixed correctly. So a good friend of mine now has a patent pending on this repair kit.

Hopefully the hyperlink works

I'm assuming the patent pending tool isn't the bent coat hanger?
