Replacing oil filter adapter and oil pan gasket on 2005 5.4

I had a dye test performed and it looks like my oil filter adapter and my oil pan both need their gaskets replaced. The oil filter adapter seems to be leaking the most.

How hard of a job is it to replace the oil filter adapter gasket?

I know I need to drain the coolant and oil, but is there anything else I need to know?

I am on my way to get the oil filter adapter gasket and don't want any surprises.

I am going to tackle the oil pas gasket at a later time.

Thanks

Oops, wrong forum. Mod, please move.

It was a time consuming job and it was very tight, but i got it done.

Drained the oil, drained the radiator, pulled oil filter, removed the bottom radiator hose on adapter, and removed the 4 bolts.

Reassembled and refilled. Messy job with all the fluids and working under the truck, but not too hard.

Thanks.
