This is what I have been fighting with for 6 hours... I like the old girl, but jesus it's a pain the ass to work on with the motor being under the cab :cookoo[1]:... ffs ford.

Doing up-pipes & gaskets. It's a 99 so everything is rusted solid. I'm annoyed with it atm, so forum and beer to relax.

Unbolt the body and jack it up a few inches. Only 6-8 bolts hold the body to frame and a floor jack and a few 2x4's should give you a few extra inches without having to unplug everything. I saw one getting a turbo and EGR cooler replaced (6.0) and they had the whole body off, made things really easy to get to.

yeah, it's all out now. It would be nice to have something to lift the whole cab off, but... I don't. if I was tearing into the block further than injection I would be finding a way tho, did the injectors like this to.

What are you doing to it? I hear hybrids really wake those trucks up.
up pipes and gaskets, getting stinky in the cab... it's my wife's work truck and it's starting to get to her. I would love to throw a new turbo on, but the Duramax ate up a lot of money this month :thumb
