Perhaps Jason could chime in. There is probably a 7.3 trick that he knows for the back bolt. I know on the 6.0s that Snap On makes a special tool that I really wish I bought prior to.

Try raising the back of trans to get more room for socket and torque wrench.

Working on the next solution...... when the block plug (coolant plug) under the starter was siezed in there, I drilled it out and ended up breaking an easyout in the hole. I went through 3-4 bits trying to drill things out with no luck. Do I:
A: gob some weld in the hole to seal it and call it done.
B: Find a way to drill everything out and retap with bigger plug.
C: roll it out of the garage and start a bonfire.

Say hello to #2 Cyl. # 4 has a crack also in almost the same spot but a little smaller. Discovered this as I was doing final prep to put the head back on. Who knows what the other side looks like..... The good news (yes staying positive) is it's in my garage and not on an epic trip. More tear down pics to follow.

Making a little progress on my project. Seems like I have a bit of bad luck though.......... steering box in rusty started pissing all over so I had to address that and put a new box in today instead of getting the ex prepped for engine pull. Slow and steady.

Default Back bolt

When I replaced the head on my 7.3. I really didn't have any issues with that back bolt. I put a zip tie to hold it up while you place the head in and then just cut that. You could probably even wrap electrical tape on it to keep it from being a nuisance. Just something to hold the bolt up until you're ready to bolt it in screw it in place.

Default Back bolt

I got my wife to use the razor to get the majority of it clean then she used a peice of flat stock and 100 grit emery cloth sand paper to finish . Then clean very well. ...
Actually I guess I kind of did that all myself but she did come into the garage for a few minutes for a photo op. LOL

with the header panel out and the a/c stuff pushed to the side, I have room to pull the motor finally. TC and bell housing bolts out last night........ I have only been able to work a couple hours a night and it seems every time I get distracted with other more important life issues. I have an engine stand to put together tonight and maybe I can get a helper to get this thing out before the holiday weekend.

The picker and stand were getting bored and I finally had a free evening to make a little progress.



With the driver side head out I needed a hook made up. Its nice to have friends with plasma cutters...... thanks Keith.



And with a little redneck engineering (socket spacers) I was comfortable with the "hook"
