Pretty simple. Take valve covers off. There are your oil rails. Take oil rails off (may not need to, I always have). Takes a big allen wrench, can't remember size. Take old ones out, put new ones in. this is also a good time to do injector o rings since your down that far anyway.

Did mine last night. Yes valve cover gaskets can be reused. The kits part number from ford was 6E7Z-9A332-B. I also bought a cheap injector o ring kit off ebay with all the o rings and copper crush washers for like $25, I think the standpipe kit cost like $115 dollars or something can't remember. Super easy, however, did not do the injectors, ran out of time, if I had started earlier and not had so many beers would have got it done. . Anyways you will need a 10 and 12 mm allen socket, good torque wrench and basic tools, swivel sockets and gearwrenches rock! Take your time, dummy plugs in the front and standpipes in the back. Luckily both of my standpipes came out in one piece. If they don't you gotta fish the bottom half out. Oh.. and on the passenger side, I cheated. he heater box is in the way many take it off. I did not. A stubby 12 mm got the bottom back cover bolts off. And I did not pull the rail, the pipe came out all the way so I separated into two pieces ( they are two pieces) and reinstalled the same. Have your batteries charging while doing this, it took about 4 crank cycles for the icp to register and fire for me. Oh and run the dogsnot outta it 4 thirty min or so to get the air outta the oil system. I will go back in and do the injector o rings when I do my glowplugs, which are leaking ( not that they matter in South Fl, just pisses me off that they leak!) Hope that helps, I am no expert, hopefully others will chime in with other info. It's just worked for me!

Injectors are easy. With oil rails off, need a t40 torx. Loosen hold down clamps, pull out injector, clamp and all. Make sure the cooper crush ring comes out with it. installation is just the opposite.

Yeah I really had planned to change my injector o rings. Almost regret it now. Also wanted to do a ccv reroute. But life got in the way as well. With family visiting and my father going in the hospital also being limited to only having this workspace on the weekend watcha gonna do, right? . Aw well gives me a excuse to tear into her again. Kinda enjoy it, plus ya learn no stuff as ya go, not only from doing your own work but also from hanging around this site!

Not much just plugging off the intake where the crank case vents to and rerouting vent on top of the driver's side valve cover by flipping it over and plumbling in a hose (I think 3/4) farther away with a breather on the end. There are a few write ups on it here. It will help prevent your turbo boots from becoming saturated with oil and keep your intercooler clean.

I know this is an old thread, but I just finished the driver's side. The bottom of the standpipe stayed in the head. I tried an easy out and needle nose pliers, no luck. What worked was a couple of wraps of electrical tape on the bottom of the top half, screw it in, and the whole thing came out.
HTH.
