Did you buy a motor and put it in, or buy a truck with the motor? Your first post is confusing, but then again, I'm easily confused...

I believe he said it was a 2013. So it came with the motor.
I would hate to try to swap that motor into something! Its TIGHT!

Ditto! 21k and no issues. 5K of it towing camper. Totally satisfied.

No doubt! I think I read they have to take the cab off the frame to do any major work on it. I swear if you laid underneath with the hood open you would not be able to see any light coming from the top. That under hood area is PACKED!

My new one:

Love my Scorpion. Put 8000 miles on it in 9 days this winter 4000 or so towing over 12000 lbs. Have about 24000 total on her now with not one issue. Man what a truck!

Just before I left the Ford world 2 years ago, I had a 2012 6.7L tore all the way down to find a locked up crank shaft- they have tab-less main bearings and one of the bearings had spun and blocked the oil supply hole. Truck had 9,000 miles.

There must have been improper clearance on the crank pin. Tab brgs will spin also, had it happen on racing engines. For cam brgs, there is a groove in the block to allow oil into the journal regardless of the oil hole orientation. Sounds like that is not the case on the main brg caps of these engines.

No, these engines have an oil hole like the 7.3,6.0,6.4...n
