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
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.
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
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.
