    Oil fill tube removal?

    Never mind, this thread can be deleted!

    How does that fill tube come off?
    It is in the way of removing the throttle body.
    Found old threads after I posted.
    Looks like a Ford design to keep us from working on our cars!

    Should be an 8mm headed clamp holding it to the valve cover.

    Or remove the top studs from the plenum...can use the double nut method to unscrew em. That gives ya just enough room to rock the TB off the bottom studs.
