Standpipe stuck in the head?

Hey guys im doing the stand pipe and dummy plug upgrade to my 05 6.0, and the old square style standpipe come out in 2 pieces and I cannot get the 2nd part out. How do I get it out??? I cannot remove the oil rail because I donot have the ford tool.

There is no Ford tool required to remove the oil rail.

All you need to remove the rail on a 05 is a torx T30

Nine T30 bolts and the rail will come off. What sucks is the early standpipes will want to stay stuck in the wavy rail when you pull it up off the injectors. You'll need to get a flat bladed screwdriver and pry the standpipe free from the rail while holding it up off the injectors. Three hands would be nice for this job.

Any time I see the old square drive standpipes they get replaced. It really sucks to get the rail positioned on 4 injectors AND a standpipe oring when going back together.
