I believe the top of the core support comes off, then pull every cooler, unbolt the trans, and take anything off the engine that may help you get it out (you may want to pull the head) then it shouldn't be too much of a pita to do

Ya if you pull the head and the oil pan should pop right out. But sometimes you get carried away and just beat the oil pan in and that works too :grin:

Remove everything up front, and I mean everything. Pop the head off and I don't see why it won't come out silky smooth...

I would remove the bumper, rads and intercooler. Makes the engine removal so much easier. If you have air tools, these truck come apart pretty easy. Do you have a barring tool?

You could probably remove the engine in about 6 hrs.

Installing the new engine is way more time consuming. :hehe:

You can remove the transmission front cover inspection plate, and bar the engine over with a screw driver. The torque converter bolts attached to the flex plate. There is a cover behind the turbo that you need to remove to gain access to the converter bolts.

The quickest way is to leave the valve cover on and take the engine out complete as much as you can i.e. wiring harness, exhaust manifold, CP3 and so on. The turbo can stay behind, there is only four bolts holding the turbo on.

Some guys loosen the cab and lift the cab up a few inches. To me removing the engine mounts is way easier. The oil pan is the biggest pain to clear.

Best of luck.

What caused the failure was that my engine decided to dump all three gallons of oil out of the turbo oil line. Well find out the engine has a fail safe prevent catastrophic damage but when i got the engine to turn over i heard grinding metal ( this is after oil was replaced). Drained oil and pulled filter, took a magnet and found excess metal in both. So figured a rebuild is a good idea along with upgrading a few things internally.

If you need a step by step, let me know. I can email you the step by step right out of alldata if need be. Don't overcomplicate it is the best thing I can tell you. It's meant to come out, just have to have patience.....and sometimes, a little anger and cussing. LOL :rof I promise it will come out though without head removal. Unless of course we're dealing with a 2wd manual transmission truck.....if that's the case you're in for a treat. :banghead:

A really old discussion to be hoping for a reply from, the guy in question hasn't been on in almost 2 years.
