    Early 99 (Made 10/98) Super Duty 7.3L 4wd Crew Cab 490,000+ well cared for miles.
    High pressure oil pump line blew out of hpop and stripped some of the threads. Photos included.
    Outside replacing hpop do I have any other reliable options. I've wondered if red Loctite would hold the remaining threads. You can see 3-4 threads on my finger that pulled out of hpop.

    The only downside to trying it is another failure so I guess it depends on how reliable/dependable you need it to be.

    I don't think you're going to get the line back in it far enough.
    I think you're going to end up replacing the pump.
    Don't try to glue it. It might hold for a minute, but it's under exactly one butt ton of pressure.

    yeah I purchased a hpop also going to service the fuel filter while it's off.
