Default 7.3 Oil Pan

Has anyone ever changed the oil pan on a 2002 F250 with a 7.3? Tonkaterry has one that the oil pan rusted out on and everyone tells him the engine must come out all the way to change it. I was wondering if that was true or not. He was told the engine will hit the firewall before it is high enough to change the pan.

I haven't even had the chance to look under a Ford Powerstroke in a long time.

This is just a thought because our fleet only goes back to the 6.0 but if the cab mounts are the same you could back the cab bolts out to where they are just barely started and jack the cab up one side at a time. On the 6.0 and 6.4 you can get a good amount of clearance this way without disconnecting anything. Don't get me wrong, its easier said than done. I would recommend against using an impact because the two frontmost bolts have a tendency to break out of the tabs and the whole thing just spins. What I do now is tack weld the suckers before I even start but if you don't have access to a welder it doesn't help much.

My nephew doesn't have time to fix it himself either so he is going to take it to a local Guru he knows. It is going to cost him about $1000 to replace the pan.

Wow. 1000 bucks for an oil pan? Just like I don't understand the 2nd Gen Dodge steering issues, I don't understand Ford's 98 and up cab and chassis design. On the square body Ford's you could get in there and do about anything. Since then you can barely get your arm in there. You either have to pull the cab or be a contortionist to do anything under the hood. 1000 bucks to replace an oil pan is just crazy and that's probably a good deal. Hate to see what the dealer charges.

From what my nephew (tonkaterry) told me (hopefully he will get on here and tell his side) that includes pulling the engine and 'enhancing' a couple of things for longevity.

Well, Tonkaterry got his truck back! Next he wound up replacing the front driveshaft, but now he can plow snow without a problem!
