Question Where to Buy Main Oil Seals?

I am looking for a front & rear main oil seal for a 2000 7.3L diesel. Just wondering where I can get the seal from other then a dealer. Are there any "aftermarket" sellers of the seals? Any makers of them that are known to holdup better then others?

Thanks

I would try an international dealer. In the past with gassers, I've used Felpro and other similar brands but I don't have a clue if they are good for our engines.

Main seals rarely go bad on a 7.3. If you are seeing a little bit of oil leaking off the back of the motor, then it is probably from the CCV issue in your other thread. it may also be the oring s on the HPOP.

I have only heard of main seals going truely out once, and it was in an abused, neglected truck, that the motor ended up being dusted.

EDIT: Brandon, I think he has the motor out of the truck and is changing things because of this. I think.

Yeah.... I'm replacing every seal and o-ring while I have it out to do the oil pan. Glow plugs, injectors a waterpump, as well as fuel lines will also be replaced.

I think I might even paint the engine International blue too!

Thanks Again!
Dan

Just curious but can't you find a master gasket kit that has the stuff you need? Or did you and you don't like the looks of some of the stuff in it?

haven't looked too hard for one, I looked at a "main oil seal kit" off some link on google and they were asking +500.00 for it... I figured the seals can't be that much. But then again.... we are talking about Ford parts here.......
