Changing out glowplugs

Do the valve covers have to be removed to get to the glow plugs on the 7.3?

I'm sure you'd find they're ALL 13mm

You can force a 1/2" socket, it's slightly undersized, on most 13's if you have a good "straight shot" on it (or a cheap worn one). But if you're working blind and relying on "feel " alone, like those VC bolts in the back, it can make using one difficult....
