Turbo trouble!!!!!!!!

I am removing the heads on my 97'. I can't seem to get to some of the turbo bolts that go to the two down pipes that run to the manifolds. I also tried to un-bolt it above there, right at the turbo and got the top two bolts out, but can't even get a wrench or anything on the bottom two. Is there a trick I don't know about? or do you need a bent wrench or something? please I need all the help I can get!!!!!!!! Got a book on it but it just shows a newer 7.3 probably a 99' up motor. and the turbo in that book bolts with two bolts through the top to the pedestal, mines from the bottom. ANY HELP?????????

The OBS turbo mounts are different then the Super Duties. Soaggydog is well versed in its removal and I will PM him this link.

17mm crowsfoot in a wobble extention will get the bottom bolts. Not fun. Down below, just loosen the bolts on the up pipe to exhaust manifolds, top bolts just compress an exhaust doughnut, (which you will replace), so you usually can yank them loose enough to get the turbo off. With the flange off, you can get at the bolts, replace them and use a healthy dose of anti-seize.

For reference the pipes that go from the back of the turbo or the collector to the exhaust manifolds are up-pipes. The single pipe that goes from the turbo outlet to the exhaust is the downpipe.

The up-pipe top bolts need to be removed from the bottom with a long extension (18in) and wobble socket.

You probably got the bolts easily for the up-pipes to manifolds, correct?


Are you leaving the turbo bolted in the valley or pulling it also?
