Time for head gaskets. Cab removal instructions??
I have put this off long enough... I still have a few more parts to gather but I am ready to dig in and get this done.
I installed a bendpak two post lift just for this job. I don't know how I made it without one. That lift has made things so much easier in the garage.
I read somewhere the instructions for lifting the cab but I cannot seem to find them. It was a great writeup that is lost in the web somewhere. I know someone on here has a copy or a good writeup on doing this..
Here are the things I am doing while in there....
EGR system already deleted
New STC fitting (still have to get it)
New glow plugs
Debating injectors (175k on these)
What else should I do while in there???
Today I am clearing out a large area to place parts, so I am planning on starting this week...
I wonder if I should just go to a shop and watch them remove a cab before I start mine. Taking lots of notes of course..
If nobody chimes in, I guess I will tackle it slowly and take lots of pics..
Can I leave the AC system intact and lift the compressor with the cab?
What about the brake system? How can I keep that intact?
