Detailed 6.0 Head Gasket Replacement

She's coming in tommorow. We were thinking maybe doing a step by step photo install without removing the cab. It's going to take a little work but am willing to do it if there is some interest. I know there's alot of people who would probably tackle it themselves if they had some guidance. So here's the offer. If there's no feed back I won't worry about it.

are you talking about removing all the heater box/blower and stuff, cause that would be a cool write up.

I can't wait until every one messes it up and Blames you because of not having a chance in heck of ever doing to right in the frist place and they start to talk bad about your shop and runes your business,That is what will happen! I have tried to show people before and they still do not know what they are looking at ,warped heads,cracks,dirt,greasy fingers on a head gasket that should have never been touched,and so on. 6.0 trucks are very finkey and so are there owners! Be carfull ,trying to help some people can turn around and bite you! my 2 cents

Why not just pull the cab, It isnt that hard of a job?? IMO

I would never try it, not saying it cannot be done.. But I like like to know stuff is perfect when I am complete. I cannot imagine trying to torque the heads to 245 lbft in there.
