Motor Oil Dipstick Tube install

Post by Cporter » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:18 pm

After 6 months, finally got the motor back together and everything installed from Texas Speed. Anyone have pics or advise on how to put dipstick tube back in?

Can't remember how and where it gets fished through. Any help would be appreciated. 2013 6.0.

Thanks,
Chuck

I had the heads off. I can't remember if the tube goes in before exhaust manifold or after.
Looks like it went between 2 and 4 exhaust ports, but I'm not positive.

Thanks,
Chuck

It goes in after the exhaust and goes between I believe 4-6 not 2-4. I can double check in the morning. If you look up from underneath you can see how it goes thru the motor mount into the block.

I can take better pics if you need buy once you get it in that area it’s pretty self explanatory.
