Ford 6.0L Powerstroke Updated Standpipe Tube and Dummy Plug Kits
Ford has released updated standpipe tubes and dummy plug kits for their 6.0L Powerstroke engine. These kits are designed to improve the performance of your truck and help prevent engine problems. Old-style rail plugs are prone to o-ring failure and can cause the engine to stall or not start at all. In these cases, you may think that the HPOP or IPR valve is the problem.
Updated standpipe tube kits help improve engine performance and reduce oil mileage. These kits contain two precision-machined standpipes and dummy plugs. Before installing these kits, you must remove the fuel rail plug. This plug is often damaged during standpipe installation. The Mishimoto Stand Pipe & Dummy Plug Kit includes a new plug and a CVC O-ring to ensure proper fitment.
O-ring failure prone
Ford Motor Company has issued an update to their injector rail plugs for their 6.0L Powerstroke diesel engines. The updated plugs are made with a white Teflon ring that stabilizes the O-rings and prevents rolling or tearing.
O-ring failure can be a serious problem for these engines. This can lead to stalling and a loss of ICP pressure. However, the new design of dummy plugs includes a back-up PTFE washer to reduce the risk of o-ring failure.
Ford has released a service manual for these engines that details the parts of the high pressure oil rail. They are located on either side of the engine. On one side, there is a port for the standpipe and a port for the dummy plug. The stand pipe is threaded into the oil rail and has cross-drilled holes at the other end. The 03-04 style also has a special fitting that feeds oil to the oil rail.
12mm allen required
To install new Ford 6.0 Powerstroke Dummy Plugs, you’ll first need to remove the valve cover. During this process, you’ll also need to remove the oil rail. To do this, you’ll need to remove the 8 bolts that secure the oil rail to the head. Be sure to do this gently to avoid damaging the o’rings in the top injectors. Once the oil rail is removed, you’ll need to remove the old standpipe.
To replace the dummy plugs, you’ll need a 12mm Allen wrench. These plugs are used in Ford 6.0L Powerstroke trucks with 6.0L engines. You’ll also need a 12mm Allen wrench to install them. These plugs fit on vehicles with a 6.0L Powerstroke engine and are compatible with 2004-2007 Ford diesel vans. Using the correct tool for the job will help prevent leaking plug oil.
