OIL PAN REMOVAL

Has anyone changed their oil pan on the 7.3 without pulling the engine?? looks like if you remove the turbo and afew other things you could jack up the motor and change it that way although I'm not positive.

You can but it's a pain in the arse plus takes more time.

Just pull the motor - they're really not that hard at all.

Remove turbo (collector and uppipes too if you want it easier), unclip entire wiring harness, remove front clip of truck minus fenders, undo four motor mount nuts, 6 tq convertor retaining nuts, 6 bell housing bolts and starter. That's basically all you need and you're ready to pull her.

Yeah, the front crossmember bar, header panel, grill, headlights, etc... You can leave the bumper on but it's easy to take off.
