Ummm, there's a couple comments here that show you are completely clueless about Fords. 1) There is no gasket for the oil pan. Only a tube of sealant, as in something along the lines of RTV or Form-a-gasket. 2) You most certainly do have to pull the cab to do this job properly. I have had it done both ways and will stick with the engine pulling via a cab lift method from now on. The other involves cutting the engine cradle, dropping the pan, attempting to get good coverage with the aforementioned sealant, installing the new pan, welding the cradle back in place. Now, if you would like to further debate this, I can get the pictures of my '99 7.3 that just had this done a few weeks back. Or scan the invoice for it. I have 4 7.3s and 3 6.0s, so I do know what I am talking about. So, to the OP, I would recommend not listening to anything jss has to say about truck maintenance.
