Re: 7.3 engine removal procedure

Not that I know of... I'd imagine the hardest parts would be exhaust separation and TC bolts? Just properly marking and detaching the electrical goodies and plumbing. And having a cherry picker that can lift 1000lbs safely and high enough.

Thats one hell of a lift. I was debating pulling the tranny/tcase out with the motor but no way in hell is that going to happen

Im pretty much done at this point, I had just realized there were no write-ups and such anywhere. Figured someone might have a link or something.

Remove cooling fan and shroud.
Drain coolant and remove radiator.
Remove intercooler.
Remove ground wires for starter and one on back of engine by down pipe

Unbolt AC compressor and lay off to the side, do not disconnect hoses
I take off the accessory brackets, the one with the power steering i just lay off to the side.
Remove starter
Remove torque converter shield then torque converter bolts
Remove bell housing bolts
Remove engine mount bolts
Start lifting engine, with jack placed under transmission.

Re: 7.3 engine removal procedure

Yeah I also dont take the whole front clip off of my truck. It is easy enough to get off so I don't mind.

Re: 7.3 engine removal procedure

Oh yeah, flip the A/C condenser off to the side too instead of removing the lines...
