76 F350 small block v-8 RMS leak repair

got my great uncles 76 or so ford F350 dually dump truck

it leaks oil from everywhere but the worst is a steady drip from the RMS

on the chevies 1985 and older you dont have to pull the transmission back to do these

what about these fords?

its a small v-8....

a 351 of some kind i imagine,

or whatever was in these with the 2 bbl motorcraft carb.

hope to god dont have to yank back the big *** 4 speed to do this.. hmm...

if so then whats gonna be a good trick to pulling it back and keeping it aligned straight?

bellhousing bolt studs to slide it back on ? or?

what size and thread?


thanks

With a 76 yr engine, All you should have to do is drop the pan to get to the RMS. loosen up all the caps and remove the rear cap and let the crank drop down just enough to get in there and work and take it from there. JMO
If you have never done this before get a good manual and read up on it for they can be a little tricky going back in. IMHO Is it a 351w engine ?
IIRC 79 back are all 2-piece RMS and 80 up went to the 1 - piece seal.

yeah no i dont need a book or whatever, trust me ive done LOTS of rms just not ford ones

i have a book for 1961 to 1971 trucks all makes i just had it for when i was 16 and stuff and was just starting out way back when and for the torque specs etc,.

i gues si coulda looked in there and found out what style RMS they used but this is a 76 and i dunno which v-8 except that its a sbf so,.,,


does it matter which one it is? are they all 2 piece regardless of which 351?


i dont know my old v8 fords i hate them all

the 240 and 300 sixes i love them and have owned some over the years


ive owned a full time repair shop since 1994


thats all i needed to know


thanks

351 ford

They all should be from 79 back a 2-piece seal. Not real sure on the exact year they went to the one piece thinking after 1980 though, do you know if it's the orginal engine ? and where you been anyway haven't seen you around much for a while now ?
