7.3 no not at all. 6.0 depends on what you are trying to do. 6.4 get it up in the air

The only one you have to lift the cab on is the 6.4. I have never seen a cab off of a 7.3 or 6.0 at the dealer and anything that can go wrong on the engines they've repaired. They even repaired a 6.4 in cab because there was a rack over the cab.

from my experiance the 7.3s you can do with out pulling the cab, the 6.0s you can work on them with the cab on but there is ALOT to tear apart to do this, most just pull the cabs. All work i have seen on the 6.4 (major work) has also been cab off
