you need 1/4" drive socket/ratchet/extension/u-joint swivel to get that bugger. 3/8" stuff is to big to squeeze in there.

I used a wooden construction shim to lift the turbo up as I loosened the last nut. Just used a shorty combination wrench as I could not find the winning combination of extension/ujoint to reach it with a socket. Took 1/2 hour max once I resigned myself to going slow.

Once I got the sucker off, I sawz-alled the stupid EBV cylinder off of the pedestal so I would not have to repeat the experience when I reinstalled the turbo. I took it to a welding shop and had them TIG weld the holes where the EBV cylinder once was. Ugly but it works fine, no leaks! Reinstalling the turbo took 2 minutes.

big negatory on pullin the cab,its a pain but i got her done....ive had it off so many times it aint funny,but just thouht id see how others are oing about it...the bolt on the passenger side is the hard one.it takes thirty minutes but it can be done.

although the tranny idea is not a bad one,come to think of it,i would rather take all those bolts outta the flex plate rather than fight that one lil bast3rd...good idea
