The Ford F-series includes pickup trucks in a variety of sizes. The F-350 is a full-size pickup that is classified as a 1-ton truck, although its actual carrying capacity is much larger. A 1995 Ford F-350 has several choices of engines, with the most common being an 8-cylinder 7.3-liter diesel engine. The oil pump in this vehicle is attached to the bottom of the engine block. The oil pump installation procedure also requires you to drain the oil from the engine.

Install an Oil Pump
Ensure the engine is completely cold to avoid injury from hot oil. Place a drain pan under the engine oil and remove the drain bolt on the oil pan with a socket wrench. Let the oil drain into the drain pan and replace the drain bolt. Store the oil for later use.
Remove the mounting bolts for the oil pan with a socket wrench and disconnect the oil pan from the bottom of the engine. Detach the oil pick-up tube from the oil pump.
Remove the mounting bolts that fasten the oil pump to the bottom of the engine with a socket wrench. Detach the oil pump from the engine and discard the oil pump gasket.
Mount a new gasket to the new oil pump and mount the new oil pump to the bottom of the engine. Tighten the mounting bolts to 14 foot-pounds with a torque wrench. Attach the oil pickup tube to the oil pump.
Install the oil pan and fasten the mounting bolts with a socket wrench. Replace the oil that you previously drained from the engine.
