Need a how to for engine removal & oil pan change
Been searching but have not found much other then a video on u tube for a 99. It doesn't give enough detail for me though.
Anyone done a detailed video on removing the 7.3 Or have a real good how-to?
If not it would be greatly appreciated if someone could walk me through it. Does the tranny have to be moved or just unbolted? There are bolts in the torque converter that have to be removed right? Does the turbo have to be taken off? If so how does that come off? Intercooler pipes, intercooler & rad have to come out. Does the grill & head lights have to come off as well?
Other then disconnecting exhaust, motor mounts, alternator & mount, steering pump, AC compressor, wiring harnesses etc is anything else that needs to be done? Just wondering what surprises I have in store for me? A special tool is required to disconnect the fuel lines right? Are they a b&%$# to get off? They look the same type as a f-150 I had a few years ago. It was a nightmare to get them apart? Can the fuel lines be disconnected at the fuel bowl instead & moved out of the way?
Does the pulley have to come off? Anything else I have missed?
