5.4L 4x4 Broke rusted dipstick tube

Got a truck with a rusted dipstick tube in the pan.Ive removed the manifold to do that while im at it.removed the motor mount.ive tried removing with a tap but the tap snapped off in the bottom.Im removing the oilrail or trying to.Is there anything im missing besides the obvious bolts.I smacked it pretty good.Its a plow truck so everythings pretty fused.

i dont have any input for you but let me know how you make out. i have the same problem but my rotted off right above the mounting bracket. i had my buddies shop look at it but he was afraid if he tries getting it off without removing the manifold it might snap off at the oil pan. he told me if it breaks off flush he would have to drop the oil pan and push it out that way. but as we know you can just drop the oil pan without raising the motor up.So you have a $14 part and hundreds in labor.

same thing happened to me. when i bought mine it was broken off flush with the engine. a couple of bolts on the oil rail are REALLY hidden, get a mirror to help.

What i did
-remove engine mount
-remove oil filter cooler thing
-did NOT remove exhaust manifold
-threaded a tap into the tube, then heated the **** outta it, grabbed the tap with vise grips, and pounded it out.

while i was at it i notice the lower radiator hose was rubbing on the frame and almost worn through, replaced that

also you will need the oil filter mount gasket

the WORST part, was rocking the engine to the passenger side to remove the oil filter cooler thingy, and pounding out the old one.

overall we spent 7 hours taking it out, 3 to get it all back together. just take your time
