Exhaust leak on drivers side manifold

Hey guys I just bought a 95 f350 and noticed on the drive home there is a pretty good exhaust leak from under the hood. I go to start the truck today and can see smoke from under the hood, also the truck wouldnt start but im pretty sure thats because the glow plugs are not working. I had my brother crank the engine over while I looked under the hood. While cranking, the smoke was coming from where the manifold bolts to the head on the cylinder closest to the firewall. My question is, do you think I should pull the motor to try to fix this or is it do-able in the truck.

Finally got around to fixing this today. Found that one of the bolts had broke off thats why it was leaking. Borrowed a torch and bottles from work, super glad I did because those bolts weren't going anywhere without some heat. 6 hours later got it all buttoned up and took it for a test drive. Next up is the oil cooler!
