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.

Remove batteries.
Remove turbo, intercooler pipeing
Unplug main engine wiring harness, When I do it I take the harness completely off the the engine.
Remove the power that feeds the glow plug relay and bring that out with the engine.
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
remove upper radiator bracket.
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.

I don't think I missed anything but feel free to add something if it is not there.

Re: 7.3 engine removal procedure

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...
