Re: I NEED TO REMOVE THE HEAD ON MY 7.3L DEISEL...
Just a suggestion, but, a Chiltons or other imaging bearing repair manuals are available fairly cheap at most major auto part stores. They contain the best information and imagery for your head job. I hope this helped.

if you are trying to ask the number of bolts just that hold down the turbo itself there are four.. but if you are asking about how many bolts need to be removed from the turbo to remove it there are three clamps one for intake from air filter,another for intake coming from compressor to the intake on the engine and another for the down pipe for the exhaust. but to remove turbo you will need to remove air intake with filter and tubes going to that along with the down pipe being popped off and pushed over, the intake for engine removed and put aside as well a few misc. little electrical parts
some are not adjustable,some yrs.are,looking at it from the front,on the left side there is an oval shaped cover bout an inch long on side of pump,remove two screws to remove cover.look in hole,bump the engine over till you see an allen head screw,turn it in about a quarter of a turn,dont turn it up too much or it will blow out alot of black smoke out of the exhaust
first of all the glow plugs are located under the valve covers. be sure to disconect both neg bat wires before starting. remove valve covers , the gaskets are reusable but take care not to damage the wires. the glow plugs will have a single wire plugged into the top. remove wire from plug and with an ohm meter set to sound put one lead to the wire connecter on the plug and the other to the head. if you have good contact that plug is ok. reconnect wire and go to the next. when you find one with no connection its bad. after all a glow plug is basicaly a direct short that causes heat. i believe it takes a 10mm deep socket to remove. make sure that you use anti sieze compound on the threads. good luck
Blow by is what you are describing coming out of the oil fill cap. A little is normal, it all depends on the internal condition of the engine. I would not be to quick to say that you have glow plug issues. I would look at replacing the cam censor on the 7.3 engine there is a recall from ford for this on some model year 7.3 liter diesels
remove the inner wheel wells or cut it back to get some access its tight that way though i would just remove the two of them its 10& 11 mm on the top sidde just let everthing hang , it is either 5.5 mm or a 7 mm . the speed sensor is in the transfer case for the 4x4 or on theh rear on the trans for 2wd
