Don't know how much the book says, but it takes me about 3 hrs. to drain everything and have it in the air.

Same here, as long as those pesky cab bolts co-operate! Don't you guys have a copy of the FMC procedure?

I don't screw with the cab bolts, I have my own way of doing them and it works every time.

It pays 5.9 for a reg/ex cab.

6.1 for a crew.

What are you doing using a torch and heating them before you attempt to remove them?

pays that much but I bet you can do it in under an hour.

Or at least I have a local tech that says he can do one that fast. He has said a few other derogatory remarks about the 6.4 Im not sure I believe either.

I can do a 6.0 in about an hour, 6.4 in under an hour is impossible.
