Thanks Rob.

Here is the failure point. The paper gasket and insufficient rtv.

Parts coming this week.

Verdict on the rear main seal? Reuse or another $60?

Where did you get the gasket from?

Trevor at Rovahfarm. had to order it through allmakes. About 3 day delivery. 43$


Rear main is absolutely fine. Oil up the crank and pull housing off evenly, slides right off. but inspect for any nicks, and reuse the installation sleeve. if you tossed it I can mail you mine.

What a great community where you can email a guy and say, "Hey, can I get that thing that you got for that guy?"

Thanks Trevor!

And Thanks Adam!

No worries. Hey Neil. Think you got the same radiator I did. Both my oil cooler hookups were leaking at the brass base nuts touching radiator. Quite a bit, Filled rad frame with oil. I pulled the brass adapter and the second nut off. Rightstuff under bottom washer, and permatex thread sealer on the adapter threads. Should be tight now.

X2. At first I only had an oil leak at the top hook up. Fixed it with thread tape. Now the bottom is dripping. It's not fun, especially the bottom one, so right stuff/permatex is prob the better way to do it

And much easier fix without oil running out of it. I used a 1 1/16 socket for both adapter and nut.

Truck is up and running again. Put in about a mile around the neighborhood last night. No leaks..good, no more oil pooling in turbo output pipe.. good, But I do have some vapor/"smoke" coming out oil cap (when off) when running, seems to be more apparent with throttle. It has faint pressure. I am going to get the truck on the road and get it up to operating temp and put some miles of regular driving. Will get a better idea of what it could be if anything. From what I have read it could be worn rings/ head gasket, etc. But who knows.

Did you happen to check the pressure from the dip stick? I recall folks mentioning that as a check for bottom end happiness.

Maybe pop the cover off and see if it is coming from more than one valve as well.

dipstick pressure is minimal but has visual vapor/smoke. Going to run it and see if anything changes, at best the motor just needs to warm up to get things freed up (been sitting for a few months). Worst case rings, maybe a head gasket but no biggie, learning a lot.

Zero doubt. That's why we're in this abusement park, right? Get in, hang on and keep arms and feet inside the ride at all times.

Agree. You may have some stuck rings. Diesel oil has powerful detergents and if that's the issue they should free up in a few thousand miles.

Thinking the same thing.

Let's get some miles under the tires and see how it is. Vehicles do best if used!

Great to hear! Anxious to see how the driveline as a whole (200 tdi R380 with higher 5th gear, and 1.4 TC) compares to the (2.5NA, MOD LT77, and 1.6 TC). Trying not to let the small things overshadow the overall improvements.
