engine removal

Hey guys,

I am really sorry to ask this question that probably have been asked many times in the past, but I really could not find what I am looking for anywhere on the bigger Ford diesel boards.

Is out there in the net ocean a clear and well packed walk through about removing a 7.3 engine off of F450 or identical model?

Thank You!

i have pulled my engine 2 times on my 2000 f250 and it is not as difficult as it looks. basically remove the radiator, trans cooler, ac cooler, and intercooler, wiring harness, torque converter bolts, trans bell housing bolts, engine mounts, etc. its relativity simple once you get going. knowing where to start sucks. i usually start from the front back. tcase bolts then bell housing bolts then wiring harness then all the stuff in front then the engine mounts and shes free. oh and theres 2 ground wires you need to remove. basically just start and before you take something off ask yourself if it really needs to come off. let me know if you need anything else. sorry if that wasnt much help, its not all that hard with some mechanical skills, just looks like a PITA

soon to go?:
2000 f-250

soon to come?:
6.4 and spartan

to add to that remove the top of the core support and the header panel that the headlights and grille mount to. just pulled my about 2 weeks ago to rebiuld the bottom end. removing that made removal and installation a one person job cause non of my buddy showed up to help. also the turbo has to be removed.

If you have the 6speed, you need to remove it before the engine. All in all, removing the engine is not that big of a deal. Make sure you have a cherry picker strong enough to pick up the motor as well as a good engine stand.

It's an auto tranny which should be a lot easier from what I have read.
So far what I figure the hard time is on removing the turbo, exhaust pipes and the radiator fan.
I have a 2 ton hoist from Harbour Freight which is not the most advanced one out there, but hopefully will handle the weight of the engine.
