Head stud install

Hey,

How hard is to install headstuds?

And the big question is do I have to take out the motor? If I dont I would think about putting it in the shop and doing it myself, but if I got to pull the motor, id just spend the 500 and have them put in. Also, do the injectors need to come out?

Thanks
Chris

it looks like it would be awfully hard to put the cylinder head back on afterwards. Or trying to slide the studs in the bolt hole on the rear of the motor

I am not replacing the gaskets, they are fine, just adding the studs, so i dont think I have to pull the whole head off.

Still, isn't it tight near the rear of the motor?

Injectors have to come out, but yet if you do them one at a time, it can be done in the truck.

with removing injectors, if I just take one injector out, do the studs around it, can i just put that injector back and move to the next. or do i have to take them all out and drain the cylinders?
