Can the 6.4 Engine be pulled without removing the cab?

I am unfamiliar with the 6.4L trucks. Can the engine be pulled without removing the cab? I have no way to lift the cab and i need to replace a bad engine. THanks

No. You can't even change the oil cooler without lifting the cab.

Nope. If I had done my homework a little better . I wouldn't have bought a 6.4 for that reason. Two days after I bought mine it went in the shop for two weeks and I got a 5k bill(cab had to come off).

Entire thread is good but see post #7.

Is "Cab Off" an option or required for Repair? - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com

The engine can be pulled without removing the cab. I've seen it in videos. It doesn't look easy at all, but yes, it can be done.

Pretty awesome link you have there just curious is that from a T.O.? Format looks right, I might have to look that number up when I go in to work to tonight. And if it is the detail in those pics is amazing the ones we have for the aircraft systems I work on aren't that detailed.

I'm not really sure where it's from, but looks like its right out of the service manual. Glad I got my hands on it saved me a lot of time and effort when pulling my 6.4, and if you work on aircrafts this should be a breeze lol just note everything that it says is one time use, don't reuse and take short cuts just replace, because pulling this engine is a pretty lengthy process, take your time do it right THE FIRST TIME.

Ok well the reason I'm interested is because we do have 6.4 trucks as shop trucks and I figured that vehicle maintenance uses technical orders for there tasks I just didn't know what T.O. It would be under. So if I can find that T.O. then I might have access to a write up on everything from torque specs for lugnuts to troubleshooting engine issues because all that info would be in there or a T.O. in that series. Fingers crossed
