got a 2004 early year 6.0, and we got the head about ready to come off. now we need to figure out how to get this oil supply line that goes down in the block to the high pressure oil rail out of the cylinder head. it has a nut on it but its next to impossible to turn? any ideas on how to do this? TIA

its a steel braded line with a hex nut on the end. one end is connected to the oil rail, removed that, now cant figure out how to get it out of the cylinder head to pull the head off?
BTW its on the passenger side real close to the cab.

It's a quick disconnect fitting. Fork Tool... just like a 7.3 HPOP line where it goes into the head or HPOP...

As far as I know, only the 03-04's had em... the 05+ have a huge log that is only bolted down.

Yep just as stated above..... I got a couple screw drivers in on the edge of the collar and pryed it off the hex nut toward the hose. It takes some pretty good pressure and another set of hands to pull on the hose but it will come off.

You can also twist that nut out but I don't believe that is the preffered method. I broke mine when I was putting it back on so be careful if you take that route.

You can take a door panel removal tool and grind the center out of it.

Take a peice of flat stock, bend it just a little and cut the middle out.

You can take two screw drivers to it and someone to pull on it.

All methods work if you don't have the right tool.

Ok here is the pic he sent. The problem he is having is getting the nut lose and still being able to hold the branch tube. It sounds like the branch tube is rotating with the nut.
