engine removal

I am no expert but I have had to pull mine twice in the last year and it is very doable without removing the cab. My best advise after getting the all the radiator and coolers out, motor mounts loosened and oil pan unbolted, remove the oil tube (4 bolts attach to block) let drop in pan, raise motor up and slide pan out, this will give you much more room and you dont have to worry about damaging the pan. Take that for what its worth, like I said Im no professional, just had to perform my own labor. Good luck.

Heck that's to much trouble, pull the front end off, unhook the wires and lines, and pick it up and out in one piece with the pan on. Mine slide right out with everything intact.

The only tight spot is the the cross brace between the crash bars, but it comes out fairly easy. With it out of the way its all simple

Thats how i did mine its not hard at all and the way they made the pan makes it easier to do it this way. I left my hood on and just took out all of the coolers, takes about 3 and 1/2 hours to 4 1/2 to get it all out.
