Anyone pulled a 6.4 without removing cab?

I have a 2008 cc lariat superduty with 155k that I need to pull the motor out due to a whole in the #5 cylinder. Guy at the dealership said it can be done without pulling cab and just by taking the fenders, hood, core support and other odds and ins on the front end. Anyone ever don't this? also anyone ever bored and sleeved the cylinders on a 6.4 want to know some information on that as well. I plan on having the block machined and then sleeeving the cylinders and going with some upgraded pistons. I plan on having the injectors tested to make sure a leaky one didn't burn up #5 any info would be much appreciated

I would think you might squeek it out the front if you remove all that componentry.....

There is an article in Diesel Tech Mag on a truck that the guy did exactly what your after...you might want to check it out....

It would be easier to pull the cab. You don't need a lift if you your creative and have a few buddies. Just pull the bed off and lift the cab backwards it's fairly easy to do

Some people have done it. Youd have to search threads. Its a lot of work. In the shop manual it shows you how. Basically the same procedure as cab off plus more.

I agree with creativity but youre gonna need a lot of tall people who are stronger than Schwarzneger. That cab is heavy and its got get about 4 feet in the air to clear the spring bracket.

you can get the machining done but you want to sleeve every cylinder ?

the cost seems to outweigh the free machining by the time you buy the sleeves and pistons

have you found sleeves yet ? blackwater uses dry liners but I don't read a lot about folks wanting sleeves ? not that i follow the 6.4 much
just wondering heck maybe it just needs a piston ?

who is sleeving 6.4's?

I haven't found a machinist who will do it because there's too much risk of breaking the skirt off when you press the sleeve

there is alot of risk thats true. who knows whats actually wrong. Wont know for sure until we tear into it. I wonder if a broken rocker arm or the egr valve/cooler messing up could throw a false code. I would figure if it had 0 compression in #5 i would hear something abnormal but it idles fine! i dont get it... any thoughts?
