Not a job for the faint of heart. With that said, I suggest that you go to this site and you will find probably dozens along with one long thread that goes step by step. And yes, I do have a V10 F350, but it's even worse for plugs, it's the 3 valve version with extended thread plugs and scheduled for March-April change out

...on the 2 valve - that's what I mean, Cole, and why he needs to go to FTE and do a search

Even worse on those, if the plugs aren't torqued exactly to spec - blow out potential and even more pain with taps and helicoils and $$$$ to repair the head
