i would like to pull the cab but im lacking the hoist, could always just pullinto the hay shed and loop a rope through a pulley and feed it through the sunroof and out the back sliding window, hoist er up and tie it off, ha ha, im thinkin cab on is a pretty big job, a little too big for a joe like myself, can anyone else chime in with experiance to this task...
I'm tellin ya it can be done with the cab on but is a royal pain. pulling the motor is way to much work for what your doin, O and I wouldnt suggest the rope through the sunroof, although it may work.LOL
If I would have had a lift I would have done it that way. I dont , so I just pulled the motor. Not as bad as you would think. I pulled it out by myself in little over half a day, the first time. got faster at it the more I did it. Wouldnt want to do it in cab. Heads way a ton. No room to get tools on anything. 245 ft/lbs sucks when the engine is on a stand. Couldnt imagine torquing head bolts in there. Wich ever way you go is going to be tons of fun though!!!!
Indeed they do. I figured you a TX boy with your sig. I feel your pain when the winters role in. Workin in the hills two years ago we saw -62. I was in my 7.3 at the time and uhhhh what a joke. I dont think that truck ever shut off
LOL sounds like fun, I got kicked off the hs team two weeks before we took state. I was pissed. But ya as far as your truck, that is a solid setup for a DD and also a good start on a high HP truck if you wanted to push it one day
LOL ya. Stay away from pz and castrol and quaker state, they are all wax based oils, go with valvoline or mobil. And stay far away from rottela 15-40 with a 6.0 the rot. foams and destroys injectors. I run valvoline 5-40 in any diesel I have ever owned and converted alot of friends to it as it is a way better oil. Give that a shot for starters. One other suggestion would be once the HS and EGR delete are done would be to go with a better set of sticks.
I've done one cab on, one cab off. Cab on I didn't think was terrible. It sucked, having to be in uncomfortable positions, but when it comes to making your truck run you just suck it up. Hardest part is getting the heads out, you need atleast two people and deff. an engine hoist for them.
