Head gasket job in progress, gathering parts...

Well, lastnight I lifted the cab. Wasn't that bad of a job. I did take lots of notes and followed a couple of walk-thrus. I will have a complete step by step that I did for my 05 CCSB.
Anyways, I have gathered some parts already and am in the process of picking up some more.

Here is what I have:
ARP studs
VR head gaskets (18mm)
oil cooler kit
coolant filter
glow plugs

On order:
Powermax turbo (don't know when it will get here)
NCHornets CCV
Casserly 175s will be ordered Monday


Misc parts to pick up:
STC fitting 4c3z9b246a (1783821c91)
FPR spring kit 3c3z9t517ag (1843065c95)
banjo bolts (fuel)w302472
washers (fuel)w303659

dummy plug kit 6e7z9a332b
question about that one. Ford said they have the dummy plugs w302908 ($26) and the standpipe 6e7z9a332a. Are the standpipes 332a the same standpipes in the 332b kit?

I feel pretty fortunate that I made it to 175k with only oil changes, egr delete, egt gauge, sct (extreme street all the time). Head gaskets finally went (because of the oil cooler I believe)

What else should I replace while in there? Throw me some part numbers.

Like I said, the cab is off... Been poking at it here and there... I have been writing down every step I have done also. Been following All-Data but I still made my own checklist. I will definitely post the step-by-step for lifting the cab as well as head removal. All of this is for my 05 CCSB.

The heads are off (finally)
They are going to "The Head Shop" in VA Bch tomorrow along with my intake for a cleaning.
Today I am working on cleaning the block, removing the hpop for stc update and removing/replacing the oil cooler. Later today is the water pump, thermostat, new serp. belt. Updated FPR spring kit to be installed.
I also took lots of pics for reference. Need to get those uploaded as well...

Sub the (a) on the end of this part (STC fitting 4c3z9b246a) with an f and you get new IPR screen and O rings included.

Oh and make sure you look over the up pipes real good for cracks now, cause its way more of a PIA to do it later, trust me I know. lol
Something I still have to do, but allot of guys are recommending to put in ELC coolant not the Ford gold.
Have fun!

Navistar/International - the fellers that made the engine - uses ELC coolant.

Uppipes look good. Going to get the ELC. I have all the parts except the elc...
Now, I was reading through the cylinder head replacement in alldata and this phrase has me baffled.... I'm sure someone knows what this means...

CAUTION: Rotate the crankshaft until the damper locating dowel notch is in the six o'clock position or engine damage can occur.

This done before you install the rocker arm assemblies...

Basically it is telling you how to position the pistons in the cylinders when you put the heads and valve train back in so that you don't have piston to valve clearance issues.

Found it here....
installing heads - turn the crank?

Gues it is a dowel on the front of the harmonic balancer between two bolts.

Now I am at a standstill. I am waiting on injectors to arrive. The heads are on, intake is on. I am so glad I took a bunch of pics so i knew how the wiring was routed. The powermax is nestled up in there too.
As soon as the injectors arrive, I can close up the motor and drop the cab back on it. Oh, when will they arrive?????? I decided on the FF 190s. Guess I should go ahead and order a tune.
