head stud question.

I have a early 04. I was just wondering how hard is the head stud install? I did a egr block off and oil cooler rebuild once. is this way over my head that was my biggest job to date just wondering if its crazy to do it myself.

I just did mine and I removed my cab. It was a lot easier than I thought. Take your time and you'll be fine. It was the biggest job I've ever done and truck runs great. If possible, it's nice to have a second person to help..

I kind of want to pull my cab just to say I did it. Maybe I'll do that when I change the transmission...just for fun.

Take the front clip off, makes plenty of room. Valve covers, oil rails, rocker assemblies. If you are doing this when you put a tranny in, would be a darn good time to get a cam if you had the desire.

Im not planning on doing a tranny when thatvday comes i am going with some kind of built up tranny but im not going to go nuts with this truck to much anyway. Now as far as injectors go at this point in the build how much hard would it be to do them at this point?

Just so you know its a proven fact that in a nation wide poll of Ford owners 92% of GIRLS said the would only do the stud job with the cab pulled. It is a proven fact that removing the cab is very girly...
On the other hand 100% of Marines Navy Seals Cops Firefighters and Wal-Mart door greaters said they would no have any issue tackling the stud/head job cab on.....
What group are you in?
