Up-pipe donut replacement

Hey,

Just curious about how long the up-pipe donuts take to replace? One of mine is leaking. Also, what is the actual part name for those up-pipe and donuts?

Any tips to make it easier would also be appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Up-pipe donut replacement

Getting it off is the hard part, replacing them is easy but getting to all the bolts is a PITA with the motor in the truck. Spray the bolts a ton a day before even attempting to remove them to loosen them up a bit.

Swamps has them on their site I think.

Pull the trans out. You will save time, bruised ribs, and a call by the neigbors for the obscene language and thrown tools.

Re: Up-pipe donut replacement

I just did this project this weekend, but I replaced the old with IH bellowed up pipes. I sprayed the bolts down a few times over the past 2 weeks in preparation. Took me about 6 hours. It was one of the more memorable projects I have taken on with the truck

I could have had the tranny out in an hour. Uppies replaced in twenty minutes. Tranny reinstalled in an hour. And been drunk and watching you finish.

Been there and done that. If my tranny comes out. The motor is getting uppies removed inspected and new donuts. Even if I had my tranny out day before yesterday.

Re: Up-pipe donut replacement

Lol... thats impressive, but honestly, I would never pull a trans for this job. Now if we were talking about a LBZ or LLY, than yes.....

Re: Up-pipe donut replacement

Pulling a tranny is simple, first time I did it, it took me 90 minutes. I had to keep crawling out from under the truck for wrenches. Second time was only 45 minutes, I crawled under there with the right wrenches. A tranny jack is a must.
