Cool Complete Build Thread

OK guys so I decided I am gonna go ahead and start taking the truck apart and do the head gasket work myself instead of paying a shop... so I am starting a build thread. Please check my parts list below and tell me if I am missing anything as this is my first build on a 6.0. I already have Edge CTS, AFE intake, and MBRP 4 inch turbo back exhaust. I decided that I might as well do everything on the how to make a 6.0 bulletproof sticky while it was all apart. The only things off that list I didn't decide to do was the remote oil cooler kit and the oil bypass filter setup.

I have 36 gallons of distilled water, a gallon of restore, a gallon of restore plus, and 4 gallons of CAT ELC for the coolant flush process.

I will for sure. My Ford workshop manual should be here tommorow. I am going to do it without pulling the cab or motor. I just gotta get my truck in the shop to get the ac system drained so I can do the coolant flush and start pulling it all apart. I am hoping it will be damn near bulletproof when I am done with it. the i can start on the fuel system mods.

If I'm thinking right, the o rings you are referring to for the oil tubes are for the standpipes and dumby plugs, the new ones come with the o rings already. Also the head gaskets include new stand pipes.

Spend some of that savings on an extra tune of ultra lube for the studs. The little packet they give you is not quite enough.

Yup, cab on motor in. My father and I did it, it took us about 3 days to disassemble but we worked pretty casually and not full days. We've got a day into assembly and have probably a day and a half left.

You'll need a set of rocker box gaskets too, 3c3z 6584 AA
