Common 6.0 Tools..

Was thinking it would be a good idea to have a thread for 6.0 owners to go to in reference to what tools and size wrench/sockets are needed when working on them. Especially to help us newer 6.0 guys help build that tool set. or atleast save time from digging through the tools For example: Socket/wrench size in metric/inch for egr, oil cooler, intake manifold; oil and fuel filter/regulator caps. And any "specialty/specific" tools one would reccomend for working on these trucks.

If you come from a car or "normal truck" background, you're gonna need one of everything in a bigger size than what you have. I can't believe how many things I try to do only to find I don't have a socket or wrench big enough.

i've fabricated more tools for this engine than probably any other one. theres so many little stupid tricks to save time. not to mention specialty tools that make the job so much easier. IPR socket, ICP socket, turbo wrenches, filter socket

it's a good idea to have half moon wrenches in 10 and 13mm for the uppipe bolts. ratchet wrenches and swivel sockets are your friend too

I think these are appropriate:
36mm short socket (for the HFCM)
3/4 box wrench OR socket (for the oil pan drain plug) OR a Fumoto drain plug as many (including me) have replaced the stock plug
6mm hex head socket adapter (for the block drain plug)

...basically a good SAE/metric tool set with a few additional "upsized" items...

Creativity with the EGR valve removal helps if you don't drive at high engine loading for sufficient time (extended idling or low speed driving builds carbon through the EGR)...stiff wire looped through the valve's flange and braced against a prybar leveraging over the alternator is a common method of extraction but again creativity helps...it also helps identify spots to add coolant filtration and oil filtration systems (I have my oil bypass filter behind the grill on the passenger side forward of the AC condenser - a bit uncommon in site selection).

I'm sure others will chime in with some other winners.

For the '03-early '04 ICP sensor behind the turbo, 1 1/16" wrench cut in half will give you the room needed to loosen the sensor for removal and install.

05-07 pitman arm nut is a 46mm. Huge honking wrench... A standard off the shelf pitman arm puller will not work either. I had to borrow one from a diesel shop (tractor trailer type).
