What does it take to pull an oil pan off a 2001 7.3?

What does it take to pull an oil pan off a 7.3 in a 2001 f-250. I was told you have to pull the motor or the transmission. Any truth to this?

Yes you do. Even on a superduty. You have to pull the motor and flip it upside down for 24 hrs so the gasketmaker seals properly

Your pulling the pan cause of a leak I assume right. If so where is it leaking? My pan was leaking & I was able to patch it with JB weld. Never thought it would hold up but so far so good. Still does leak a very small amount but but nothing to be concerned about. Some have used POR 15 & had good success but it did not work for me Just a suggestion to try if you don't want to pull the pan right away.
