6.0 Tear Down

Got started on my 6.0's disasembly today... little annoyed too because it was nice all week while i was stuck inside while it was pretty nice weather outside.. and today its in the 80's feeling like 90's...



got the truck up next to the house yesterday while the parents were out...

Started out today getting the old carport down... then got my detailing tent up so i could work in the shade...





batteries out.. as well as the intake...



lots of room there on the driver side...



not so much the passenger side though...



did discover apparently the Ficms been replaced twice... as when the first owner had it and had the ficm replaced while they had it was prior to 2008 when they traded it in... so if that was remanned in 2010... that means the 2nd owner replaced it at most 2 yrs before i got it.. cant say for certain as sometimes products do sit on shelfs for awhile..



little concerned about this corner of the ficm though... was the lower side in the back by the firewall... hoping that doesnt mean something inside exploded and tried to leak out... but when i tested the ficm i was in the norm range...



surprised to see my EGR valve only had dry ashy soot on it... was sorta hoping to just find it wet again like it was when i cleaned it off a year ago... but guess that means my EGR coolers not bad...



bye bye turbo...

Never seen a 6.0 in the flesh yet Shawn ..... the engineers really shoehorned that one in there didn't they. They are still up there price wise here so it will take time before we see one in our neck of the woods - $75k http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used...-884590229.htm

Just as an aside Vince what would a job like that cost at your shop ? and how long do you reckon it would take to do the job for the first time? - reason i'm asking is that we are bound to see one of these at some stage down the road (probably when they are completely worn out )

come on by ill let ya see it and put it back together... lol i need a stronger impact gun... mine did nothing on those head bolts except for 2 of them...

also found most my intake bolts were loose as heck.. and apparently one of the previous techs that worked on the truck snapped a valve cover bolt off in it.. not i get the fun of fishing that out...

the one time if i remember right he told me was a minimum 5K.. ive heard of others paying upwards of 10K for full rebuilds...

Anyone that gives you a definite price before starting isn't worth the title of Mechanic. How can you put a price on it until you tear it apart, you don't know what's worn out?
