6.0 head studs cab on install questions.

Am I reading correctly?

Can I do head studs in my driveway? I'm reading it's possible by tilting the engine some.

I'd really appreciate advice from someone that has done this without removing the cab.

Thanks for all the help.

Damon

Yes, you can do it in your driveway and no need to tilt the engine. Lots of threads and stickies available on this. Here is mine: And so it begins... the build . Do a bunch of reading and research and then ask your specific questions. We're here to help along the way.

This article talks about doing them in cab. Ford Super Duty: Project Outcast Part 2 - Diesel Power Magazine
I'm like you, where I need to do mine as well soon. I was ready to build a cab lift so I could perform the procedure cab off, but after a lot (probably 20hrs) of reading and researching, I've decided to do it cab on.

There is another forum that has a doc of tricks. I will try to find a link to it. (Mods sorry if that is not proper procedure)

Here is the tips doc I was talking about. (again it's from a different forum - which I do not belong to, the same or better info may be found on this forum) Hope that helps.

Heard some are doing it one bolt at a time with good head gaskets. Is this possible?

Just pull the motor out of the front of the truck.

I'm not a mechanic and it took me 4 weekends to do it.. working a little bit each weekend.

I'm 180 pounds.. and torqueing studs to 250 foot pounds was challenging for sure. had to basically put my legs against the block and pull with all my might smoothly to get the torque wrench to click.

I couldnt' imaging trying to torque it to 250 with the block in the cab.

She runs like a champ now.. you can really tell how much better it runs than my dads 6.0.. he wants studs and a tuner on his now.. haha

Hey Damon, What type of torque wrench were you using?
