    Hey, I'm a TCCAer, too! I have all of 5 posts.

    Anyways, about how much do rod bearings cost. What else should be replaced while I'm under there?
    Thanks

    The Clevite rod bearings from NAPA (#CB1435P I think) are about $7/set. You need 6 sets.

    You'll want to replace the oil pan gasket. You'll also might need to fabricate a new oil pickup tube gasket, as I think the part is obsolete.

    Since you'll have the y-pipe off, it would be an excellent time to upgrade!

    Oh, and you might want to replace the oil ;^)

    You can get the Felpro V6 MTX Oil Pump Gasket Kit (Called Timing Cover Set) - includes oil pump-to-block gasket, oil pickup gasket, front oil pan seal, and front main seal. Obsolete from Ford, but available from Felpro.

    FYI, the FelPro kit's front crank seal has been oversized & damaged on 3 of my attempts so far vs. the normal smooth installation of the E9DZ-6700-B Ford crank seal. Since the front pan seal is the only one included, and you pull the whole pan off, I don't see the benefit of the extra pieces (other than the oil pump & pickup tube gaskets themselves). You still have to / should get the rear pan seal as well.

    Just an opinion, of course.

    I remember when the guy first came up to my garage with the Fel-pro "timing cover set" package. I was like, "GIMME THAT!", and promptly emailed Josh T the number when I saw what was inside. Fred beams... :)

    Try the National 710220 part for the front main crankshaft seal as it was the OEM part and is a better fit. Look here for some common parts and their lowest cost sources.
