arp studs

If anyone is interested, the December copy of DieselPower magazine has a article about how to install head studs yourself. Just picked it up today. Will have it done if gaskets ever go.

Does anyone know of any other books or magazines about the 6.0l....
I have download the 6.0L bible already. I try and learn as much as possible about the 6.0l as possible,,may have to work on it someday...

Thanks
Jason

Maybe others can see what is involved in doing head studs. They could have an idea what the techs are doing, and if they are lucky enough to own a lift, then they could go for it.

Just letting others in on some info...

whats that supposed to mean??

in all seriousness.....doing headstuds on a 6.0 RIGHT takes the average (not all...but average) dealer emplyed and factory trained tech 17-22 hours. Some can do it in 10-14 hours but this isnt the normal tech, this is the guy that really gets it. Not to discourage anyone from doing studs themselves, but i honestly feel that you have the "have's" and "have not's" as far as people who have the mechanical ability to tear ANY engine apart. only about 25% of people are "have's".....

of that 25%........only about 25% of those are really capable of an in depth repair on a more complicated motor (like the 6.0) without hitting major hangups....Soooo.....

that means that 12.5% of people who think they are mechanicaly inclined are actually capable of this repair/fix in my opinion. this isnt to say people cant do it...but people need to understand the complexity of this job before they start and get in over thier heads.......

I agree with ya marc, I have the tools, time, and parts, but dont feel its something i can do with out having a problem. And when i herd it was 20hrs of labor, i thought to my self.. hummm lets double that if im doing it myself.

I read the article and I must say my stomach hurt after seeing that lol..I will though say that when I saw the pics of Stumps truck getting the studs done as crazy and scary as it may seem. I have talked to Scuffy (Scott) and he deffs know his stuff. I wouldn't worry about it too much knowing he was doing it. But overall that whole job justs blows me away. I give Stump and Scuffy TONS of credit.

Let me say this another way then,,,

If anyone is interested, the December copy of DieselPower magazine has a article about how to install head studs if you have a lift, tools, mechanical ability, and know how...

Better yet take it to the dealer..
