I'm in the middle of doing an engine removal on my 2011. I really have no idea how you got to the top bell housing bolts. Can you give more details on how you did this and any special tools you used?

I hate to dig up an old thread but hopefully it’ll help people like me who google projects before tackling them. I viewed this thread prior to replacing the engine in a 2013 ecoboost f150 and it had me worried. However, I discovered that literally none of the disassembly of the front of the truck or lifting the cab is necessary. Where did all this bad info come from?? The engine is not very long and it comes right out of the top with the radiator and support all in place. Just unbolt it from the transmission and lift it out! Do not do all that extra stuff for nothing. Attaching a pic to show how there’s plenty of room!! View attachment 170249

I used a long extension and swivel socket. If you’re struggling with it unbolt the trans cross member and let the whole thing angle down a little.
