The Ford 6.0 STC High Pressure Oil Pump or HPOP Fitting Update Kit is the an improved high pressure oil pump fitting kit for 2004.5 to 2007 Powerstroke 6.0 diesel engines. The factory 2 piece “snap-to-connect” or STC fitting used to connect the high pressure oil pump to the oil supply branch tube can flex causing wear on the seal and the locking ring resulting in oil leaks and occasionally the complete separation of the fitting. When a leak occurs at the oil fitting, your 6.0 Powerstroke diesel engine may have difficulty starting or may not start at all. Depending on the size of the oil leak the engine may stall abruptly and without warning.
The 6.0 STC HPOP Fitting Update Kit Ford part number 4C3Z-9B246-F is the most current revision available to service the failure prone factory Snap To Connect or Quick Connect fittings on 2004.5 through 2007 Ford 6.0 Powerstroke diesel engines.
The 6.0 STC HPOP Fitting Update Kit 4C3Z-9B246-F bracket is designed to support the fitting and branch tube and eliminate the possibility of the fitting separating from the oil pump.
