This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include vehicles through the 1998 model year and to include a Note.
A new design engine block for 7.0L and 7.5L engines has been released for service. There is now one (1) common block for both applications.
If replacement of the engine block on the 7.0L or 7.5L engine is necessary, replace the block with the new design Engine Block (F6TZ-6010-GA). The oil pump pickup screen stud must be in the proper location. Refer to Figure 1 and Figure 2 for the correct location differences between 7.5L Econoline/F-Series and 7.0L Medium Duty vehicles. The removal and installation procedures will remain the same.
|NOTE:||THE MAIN BEARING STUD BOLTS WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE OLD BLOCK AND INSTALLED IN THE NEW BLOCK.|
