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:
VR head gaskets (18mm)
oil cooler kit
Powermax turbo (don't know when it will get here)
Casserly 175s will be ordered Monday
Misc parts to pick up:
STC fitting 4c3z9b246a (1783821c91)
FPR spring kit 3c3z9t517ag (1843065c95)
banjo bolts (fuel)w302472
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.
