Mine doesn't leak! It's amazing what following the book will do. Can't tell you how many cam caps i've seen leak because people don't put flange sealant on them.

Also if you think about it could be related to blowby, which is related to the rings.

Detroits always leak from the oil pan, crank case, or valve cover. All related to crankcase pressure.

I haven't ever had an issue with that area. Lots of little places to leak though. People tend to forget the flange sealant under #1 cap. Case stiffening bracket really helps too.

That's my dads truck. Other than one oil leak it's been rock solid and averaging over 9 mpg.

I get 9mpg when I pull an empty trailer too. Iíve been between 4.7-6.08 since July. Had a 3.68 sneak in there too, they should flatten the Appalachian mountains out a little or I could make 3 trips instead of one.

Trucking is like carrying groceries. Making more than one trip seems crazy. Click the image to open in full size.

That thing was a literal parachute and going across Idaho and Wyoming with the wind blowing like it was, was not friendly to me.

Getting close.
Everything is built and fitted. Now I get to pull it back apart to paint the frame, fenders, tanks, and polish the rear light bar.

C15 (6NZ) 475hp, 13 speed, 3.21 rear now, (was 3.73).
Lowered it 4.5” up front, 4” in the rear, and converted it from a 185” single axle to a 248”Ě tandem axle.
