Check the valley of the motor out real well for leaks, they show up as oil drip from flywheel area which you can easily mistake for a rear main seal. The rear main seals going out are very rare. good luck with your truck I know you will love it. Be sure and read as much as you can on the powerstroke forums they are very educational.

    THE PICKUP ASSEMBLY HAS A ROUND SCREEN ON THE BOTTOM THAT CAN FALL OFF INTO THE TANK.THERE IS ALSO 2 MESH NYLON SCREENS THAT NEED CLEANING THAT YOU CANNOT SEE IN SIDE OF THE ROUND PLASTIC CYLINDER THAT IS SNAP LOCKED TOGHETHER.YOU CAN BUY A KIT TO DO AWAY WITH THIS AND ADD A EXTERNAL FILTER BEFORE THE PUMP LOCATED INSIDE THE FRAME. PS YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A REMOVAL TOOL FOR THE FUEL LINES.
