I've gotten that one out without any issues. Is it possible to A: budge the AC box out of the way or B loose the motor mounts and pry engine to one side to gain clearance

Do you still have the silver colored heat sheild on your AC box?
When I pulled my heads, removing that gave me enough clearance to get #7 out. Watch out though...more than likely there is a good amount of condensation and dirt that's accumilated inside. I'd recomend covering the heads with a towel or something similar before removing it.
These trucks are funny with engine/body clearances. Some of them are so far forward they clear a 3" dp no problem, and i've seen some that required a good inch to be beaten out of the firewall. Not sure if it varies year by year, or is just one of those fluke things.

What they ^^^^^^^^^^^ said.

I too have had to take the heat shield off of the A/C box to get those out if memory serves me correctly. I know I didn't have to move the engine even though it was tight (twss).

Thanks for the replies

I have not removed the heat shield yet. It is strange how the trucks differ I was wondering why I couldn't find a single post on the #7 injector hitting the a/c box. I'll be trying it again next weekend when I put new o-rings in.

Remove the heat shield and then remove the vacuum reservoir from the A/C box (a couple of screws will remove it). You can also remove the solenoid from the injector which may give you enough room to remove it. If all else fails, you can remove the A/C box. Its only a few screws, with one in the cab under the carpet (its actually fairly easy). Cheers!

It's ussually just the Vacume res. that you need to pull, as Patrick says. A screw on the top and a screw on the bottom of it then it just slides forward 1 inch and you can flop it over on top of the A/C box.
