Getting ready to pull the motor on the 7.3

I removed the whole front clip, everything on the motor is disconnected besides the fuel lines (didn't have the quick disconnect tool on hand) and the trans bolts are still in. Is there anything i should know and check before continuing? or something to watch out for? Reason I am pulling it out is so i can do the oil pan seal and the turbo. I just don't want to run into anything and screw myself over.

Nothing is too surprising at this point. It's a lot easier to wiggle it out if you remove the turbo and take off the oil filter.

Was hoping to do the turbo when it was out of the truck haha, just seems like a ***** to get my big hands back in there and what not.

Also, I was curious to what you guys think i should do. Almost everything from the hood down and a few feet back is soaked in oil sludge. My buddy who is helping me pull the motor says I should leave it, would help reduce rust haha. It's not a show truck or anything. Just a work truck with a few power upgrades. Think I should degrease it or leave it?

i would absolutely degrease it if its coming out of the truck, you'll never get a better shot at it then now. Also it will help identify future oil/fuel leaks if any. Didn't want to cut the crossmember ay?

No way lol. Besides the turbo and pedistal need to be replaced anyways. Would be alot easier with the motor out.

They are the two pipes that come off of the exhaust manifolds and connect to the turbo collector. Also, you are going to have a hell of a time (you can't lift the engine high enough for the oil pan to clear the crossmember) getting the engine in and out without removing the turbo. The turbo comes out pretty easily.
