2001 Cab Removal

Been checking out things around here, Does anybody have a good list of the things to undo or remove for removing the cab on a 2001 7.3 for studs and injectors. Just trying to get a game plan together to make everthing as smooth as possible when doing it. I will be using a lift to lift it.

Thanks

Re: 2001 Cab Removal

I am pretty sure you can do injectors and studs without pulling the cab on a 7.3. I have heard of many people who have done it. Someone will chime in with tips to do it with out pulling the cab.

No need to pull the cab for injectors or studs.

Re: 2001 Cab Removal

in theory pulling the cab/motor makes the job much nicer. laying over the motor for 10hours swearing cant really be that fun, hell I hate taking the turbo out.

Injectors and studs were installed in my truck. Started on a Saturday and finished on a Sunday.
Remove 14 little screws on the passenger side at the a/c airbox to gain access to the back of the head. If needed loosen motor mounts and trans.mounting bolts at the cross member and jack the engine side to side as needed.

Re: 2001 Cab Removal

We always pull the motor or the cab to do studs/injectors ina 7.3. Being as we can have the cab off in an hour or two, it makes sense and gives a LOT more room.

pull the fan and shroud, ic tubes and boots, batteries, wiring harness, bat wires, ground on the firewall, battery grounds, starter wire, and ground under passenger side front door, disconnect the tranny/body harnesses under the fusebox under the hood, steering shaft, brake lines and ps lines, abs wires in the wheel wells, and lay the ac compressor over to the side (no need to evac ac). then unbolt the cab bolts from inside and away you go. Dont forget if you have any misc wires for a stereo or your gauges. I might have missed a few things, but thats the gist of it. If anyone sees anything i missed please post up!

Re: 2001 Cab Removal

If I had the means of lifting the cab I would definitely do it that way.

Thats what im guessing, standing on my feet instead of hanging over the front end sounds alot better. Might take some time to pull it but the studs injectors and glow plugs should go alot smoother.

Thanks for the list aggie.
