Special tools 2007 6.0

I'm sure this has been asked before but I'm new to the forum. Is there any special tool, lock tight, lubricants, or drain plugs I need for going through the process of replacing the head gasket, EGR delete, and head studs on a 2007 6.0? Thanks for your time..

You will want a snap on srd 35 torque adapter. They're about 60 bucks from snap on. I have one for sale if you're interested. You will also want a 1/2" dr torque wrench that will go up to 210 ft/lbs, head lifting bracket, and an in/lb torque wrench.

Here's a good thread for a bunch of other parts.

I saw that list, the engine oil drain and oil cooler line disconnect had me confused. I called the oil cooler disconnect manufacture and they had nothing listed for 2007 Ford 6.0. They could not guaranty the 8023 tool would work on my truck. I didn't even know if I needed one. The research I had done and the episode on Truck U, EGR delete, said nothing about specialty tools of any type. The two - adapter, lifting bracket were a new one to me. Sure let me know about the adapter and if anyone has a used lifting bracket - sweet. I could make one but just don’t have the time right now. I already have to build a parts washing station and topside creeper after all of the honey do’s are done plus train a waterdog. The removal of the head studs is what was really worrying me, but I’m not reading much about head studs breaking off when removing them or special removal tools. I saw Mac Tools have a head stud removal kit and didn’t know if anyone was using them. Now I got a 70’s Mach 1 / 351 Cleveland to tear into still and that one has me a little bit more worried about something breaking off. A lot of mixers were going on back then mmm blue or red lock tight chug chug.

I don’t do a lot of heavy pulling or racing, just long distance driving and a proud owner. I’m not doing major drag out over the top, smoking tires modifications just not my cup of tea, but moving closer to no more worries for another 170+ miles is. Trust me I understand doing it right has many different options.

I wouldn't worry about the stock headbolts breaking with you're pulling them out they're a pretty stout bolt. I didn't need any oil cooler disconnect tool.

Grab yourself some extra assembly lube gunk for the ARP studs. The little tube they give you nis no were enough. I picked mine up on amazon for like $18..... Oh yeah and if you got the extra $ pick up a top creeper! Got mine from Sears, was WONDERFULL. Although my nipples were sore for a bit....

Great advice thanks again. The creeper is a great idea but hard to get past the wife. She has already seen the prices on them from this past Christmas and had to choose between taking money out of the hunting fund for the creeper or keeping it. I have a neighbor looking at doing his 6.0 as well later this year. So Iím building a setup topside creeper with left over light from night fishing mounted and tool tray for the shop. I have some scrap wood left over from a basement demolition project to work with. I sure will order some lube gunk for the ARP studs. Are you applying it on the bottom threads going into the block as well? I have looked at the coolant filter setups and some have valves before and after the filter and some have just the hose clamps. Is there any pro's or con's on either that you all have experienced?
