Oil Level Gauge Adapter Repair Kit
A full repair kit for the adapter that is located on the passenger's side of the oil pan where the dip stick tube is connected to the oil pan.
This kit will fit all 7.3L Ford diesels from 1994 to 2003 and the engine oil pan does not have to be removed.
Note: If you have tried to tighten up your flange adapter's large 2" nut, this may have bent the interior part of the flange adapter where the new O-ring and seal may not be able to fully contact the interior on the oil pan. If this condition exists, this kit may not repair your leak.
Parts and tools included with the kit:
- Loctite 515 Flange sealant 6ml
- Galley Brush
- 4 - O-ring pick tools
- Oil level gauge adapter gasket
- Viton Oil level gauge adapter interior O-ring
- Ford special Dip stick tube O-ring
- Oil level flange nut

|When the old internal O-ring begins to swell and pushes itself out of the groove in the adapter, it puts enormous pressures on the adapter’s threads, stretching and distorting them to the point that the new nut is difficult to install. You will need to hold the adapter solidly to clean and straighten the thread. We have found that by using a set of needle nose vise grips inserting into the dipstick tube opening does a good job at this.
If you do not have access to a #16 External Thread Restorer File, it is highly recommended to locate one of these tools before attempting the repair.
