Ford F Front Cover Cooling System Flow

without comments

Coolant is drawn into the inlet of the front cover and then flows from the water pump through the front cover to the crankcase.

Coolant is also routed from the front cover into the crankcase to a passage that feeds the oil cooler.

Return coolant is directed to the thermostat by the front cover. If the thermostat is open, coolant flows to the radiator to be cooled. If the thermostat is closed, coolant is returned to the water pump via a bypass circuit in the front cover.

Ford F Dual Mass Flywheel

without comments

The 6.0L Power Stroke uses two different flywheels for the manual transmission.

A dual-mass flywheel is used on the F-250/350 Superduty truck.

The dual-mass flywheel can be identified by springs located around the flywheel on the engine side.

It can also be identified by an extra ring of bolts on the transmission side of the flywheel that holds the two masses together.

From the side it can be identified by the separation between the clutch surface and the starter ring.

Ford F Rear Geartrain

The geartrain for the crankshaft, camshaft, and high pressure pump are located in the rear of the engine under the rear cover.
