Engine removal 96 F350 7.3

I have to swap out the engine on my 96 f350, and can find some info on the 99 and newer pickups, stating that you remove everything from the front of the pickup and then lift and slide the motor out over the bumper. Can you do the same on the 96 model and if so how do you go about it? I got a Chiltons for it, and it doesn't say squat. In fact it said the fan clutch had a left hand thread, when it is a right hand thread. Not impressed with the manual. So hoping for some input and info on taking that beast out.

Pull everything in front of it, header panel, radiator, core support, bumper, gap guard, headlights, turn signals, literally everything in front of the fenders, unplug all harness' and well I took the hood off and went up and over on a 95, but you won't have to re align this way explained, but it won't be quick and easy either way, don't forget the trans (6 bolts) and motor mounts as well

It will come out if you pull hood and radiator have to lift higher but it does fit that way

if toy are anywhere near rust, do NOT try and remove the core support. Just take the whole nose off the truck and plan on new rad support bushing and bolts

I just did this, i've got my new engine on the stand right now actually. Original plan was to pull the core support, but it was so bad that i left it in. We pulled the engine right up and out of the engine bay. All that really needed pulled out was the radiator and hood. Extremely tight fit though! Now at one point the engine did shift and dinged up the windshield wiper motor, but it wasn't in great shape to begin with so no biggie there.

Biggest challenge is finding something to lift it with. We have a forklift so it was no big deal, but you need something heavy and that can lift high if you leave the core in. These things are beasts! And Bill(alberta7.3) gave me a good tip, just remove the 2 nuts on the engine mounts under the crossmembers. Some write-ups say to unbolt the mounts from the engine, but if you take the nuts off it will lift up and out.

I just did it too. No need to pull the support. Pull the rad and hood. Then as your lifting it out when it's about halfway out turn it to the right (if your standing looking at the front of the truck). Turn it 90 degrees and she should come right out. I used our bobcat to lift mine out. Worked amazing. Just gotta be steady with the pedals lol
