To the OP, I've never seen or heard of anyone pulling out a 6.4 cab on......
To be honest, I think one would spend less time and headache by simply lifting the cab off and go from there.
Yeah, I have done a HPFP cab off already- However I am about 3,000 miles from home for work and in an apartment complex. The deal was I could use the aparmtment maintenance shop(no lift) but had only the weekend, and the truck had to be out by Monday morning. So after working 14 hours Saturday and most of sunday, I was left with Sunday night to get done what I needed. Long story short- I can't just lift the cab and let the truck sit for a week.
First-what a complicated origami mess of hoses and wires. I sorely underestimated what I was getting into. I've done enough 7.3 R&R's that I can do it almost blindfolded.
Next- What I wound up doing was a hybrid of cab and motor pull. Yarded the bumper, hood, radiator and all the crap on the front, like I was going to pull the motor. Then I used an engine hoist to lift the front of the cab about 6 inches leaving the rear two cab bolts loose to keep alignment. Those extra 6 inches of space make ALL the difference. Ripped apart as much as I could in the time I had, set the back down in the front and wheeled the truck out into a parking spot. Now I am about to go get wrenching again and just pull the heads with the cab on, but lifted slightly.
Also solves the issue of how to apply 275 lb-ft of torque to the studs on an engine stand...
. I promise, pictures are coming.
