Intake Manifold Removal??????

Can someone tell me how to remove the intake manifold on a 302? I wanted to replace the gasket and also the gasket on the valve covers. then I was going to replace the head gasket if it wasn't too much trouble then torque it all down. I would love a new engine but don't have the $ so all how-to help would be appreciated. Also do I need to drain the oil and coolant to do this?

your best bet would be to by a repair manual at your local parts supply store
make shure it is either for your truck year or your truck year is included
ie: 1982-1996 or what ever the year?? I assume the engine is original??

when you ask for parts for the year and make of the truck do they fit the engine
if so then you should be ok.i have a block and heads from a van in my 85 f150
that is older than the truck and i dont have any problems with ordering parts for
the year of my truck they bolt straight on ( except i had to shim the alternator so it would line up with the other pully's. If you want to know exactly what engine you
have you could always run the number stamped on the block.

You don't have to drain coolant unless you replace head gasket. There are 5 hex bolts and 1 star bolt on the upper. The star can be an issue and you will need the correct size t30 I am thinking, and a 1/4 socket with extension to remove. You will also need to remove the efi wire harness and disconnect supply and return fuel lines that connect to fuel rail. Also will need to remove intake ducting to throttle body and all radiator hoses connecting to TB and manifold. Make sure all sensors and fuel injectors are unplugged when you remove harness. You will also need to remove all vacuum lines from the upper intake. One last thing would be to lift the solenoid and coil bracket off the driver side in one piece. You are free then to unbolt the lower intake. Just be sensible on your tightening sequence and torque on reassembly 20-23 ft lbs should be about right.
