Oil leak from dipstick.

My 2000 f550 has a 7.3 power stroke.It developed a leak where the dipstick goes into the pan.It has a nut and a o-ring on the inside and a nut on the outside.Most dumnassed thing ive seen.The stupid thing is the o-ring is worth 5 bucks,but you have to drop the pan to change it which you cant do without lifting the engine that i can see.I phoned ford up in whitehorse and the guy said that there have been a rash of these things leaking. Anyone else have this problem?
