I think you can do it by loosening the intake manifold and raising the front of it up a little to disengage it from the front cover. Not 100% on this though.

Save time and lose the intake manifold bolts im prety sure that you dont get it between manifold because of dowel pins and crank shaft.

What? Don't understand what you're going for there.

It can be done without removing the intake, you need to take a pair of punches to stick through the front cover bolts to "force" the cover up onto the dowels. If you have never done a front cover before I suggest you just loosen the intake.

Just another chipped, studded, and deleted 6.0...

Did it work?

I'd like to hear inputs from people changing the front cover without removing intake. I need a new front cover and I am trying to save a lot of time.

also, does anyone know the ford part number for the crankshaft front seal speedi-sleeve?

thanks,

Derek

I changed my front cover recently to upgrade to the bigger water pump. I did loosen the intake manifold. It makes it a lot easier. Just a note on the speedi-sleeve; one came with my cover kit but I just put the old seal back on. The crankshaft looked good and I didn't want to bother trying to find the sleeve install tool. It's all good.

if you loosen the intake, then crank it back down, how do you ensure the old gaskets seal?

thanks,
Derek
