ARP Install at Home

Well I, with my son's help, have stripped the truck down and got the heads off and ready to go to the machine shop. Thanks to many of the previous org members who have posted their trials for us to learn by.

I have rebuilt many gassers but this is my first diesel. So far I not to bad, just much heavier. I did find something strange, both bolts on the last cylinder of the driver side exhaust manifold were headless. the spacers are both gone of course, what is their purpose? can those be obtained at the dealer or do I just replace them with quality hardware store bolts? Does anyone have a few exhaust manifold bolts and spacers they would like to send my way?

Cool. Assuming you're doing studs? Let us know how the torque'ing of the nuts goes. I don't even own anything that will hit 250ft/lbs other than my impact.

Well, heads are at the machine shop, needed 6 guides and doing a valve job at the same time. Lots of goodies are starting to show up. Still deciding whether or not to replace the injectors...stiction seems to be the only issue right now. Does any one have any spare exhaust manifold bolts and spacers??

Just wipe 'em down and throw 'em back in... Glad to hear about it. I'm not sure where you can get manifold bolts other than the dealership.

Finally got my heads back from the shop, and all my parts are in except my headgaskets from RCD. Once they are in, what's the best procedure to get the heads/valve train/studs done. I was guessing I would put the heads back on the truck and put all the valve train pieces in place and then do you finger tight the alignment bolts on the rocker pedestals and then install the nuts and washers and go throught the torque procedure for the studs? Or put the top row bolts (the little ones) and the bottom row nuts and washers on (not torqued but hand tight to snug then deal with the middle row nuts washers and valve train goodies and torque from there? just trying to get this right, thanks for the input!
