It's gasket and seal time on my 5.9 with 190k miles. this is the frist "major" engine work i have had to do since i bought the D 6 years ago :rck:

i got a week off of work soon and looking to fix a front seal leak that is leaving spots on my driveway. Going to do the rear main as well. AND also might as well replace/rebuild the oil pump since i have to take that off anyways.

while the oil presure is still good, i am thinking with the increased space between the bearings from 190k of driving, it would be best to install a high volume oil pump for $25 more than a regular one.

Has anybody had problems or heard of problems with oil starvation with the stock pans from high volume oil pumps?

Not sure why removing the oil pan would require you to bother the oil pump. Unless you are rebuilding the engine and increasing performance a whole lot over stock, I would stay with a stock pump.

High volume is not better than OEM for a stock motor.
