Question Cab off write-up?

Where can a person find a write-up for removing the cab? Anyone know where I can find one?
TIA

Re: Cab off write-up?

why do people pull cabs on a 6.0? You can do anything on that truck without pulling the cab.

Pulling the cab makes things much easier. To do the heads properly on a 6.0 you either have to pull the cab or the motor. And the cab is easier

I guess the hundreds of headgasket jobs I've done were improper then. With all due respect here guys, I'm a diesel master tech for one of the biggest Ford dealers in FL. You don't have to pull the motor or the cab to do this job, and yes I've installed head studs. If someone prefers to pull the cab or engine for this job that is their perogitive, but it isn't something that HAS to be done.

Why do Ford Techs get butt hurt over the fact that it is easier on average for the normal wrench turner to lift the cab?

Because if they average person can do the wrench turning, Ford Techs cant make any money.
