Well i'm a little late to get this thread started, but i'll give a little background here. As I mentioned in the other thread I started. My engine hydro-locked because of a leaking air cleaner lid/hood seal. That all happened right as harvest was starting (i don't farm i just help out) so unfortunately I had to let the truck sit for 2 months before i could start on it. So i just pulled glow plugs and poured Marvel Mystery oil down the cylinders to hopefully prevent rust from getting too out of hand. With that all being said I've got the engine down to the bare block and i'm getting ready to get in touch with a machine shop i found nearby to take the block and heads too. So below is a bit of a timeline of the tear down. This isn't going to be anything exciting. Its really just probably going to be a mostly stock rebuild, outside of the torque cam i plan on adding. But who doesn't enjoy a picture heavy rebuild thread? To break the posts up i'll post a response with my findings so far. Step 1: Stare at your truck for a couple hours and cringe at all the wiring you did when you were a teenager. Step 2: Remove everything in front of the engine and tell yourself you'll remember where it goes. Step 3: Wrestle engine hoist for 30min before realizing there are 6 bell housing bolts and not 4. Step 4: Discover that you aren't as good as you thought you were at draining the cooling system... Step 5: Start second removal off all unnecessary things and once again promise yourself you'll remember where it goes. Step 6: Well this explains why my truck would very slowly start to get heat soaked when i towed the C600. Step 7: Remove injectors via brute force and ignorance Step 8: Hey here is a bright spot. Internals look pretty clean! Step 9: Nevermind... Step 10: This other cylinder looks better at least. Step 11: puuuuuuushhhh Step 12: Rejoice as we celebrate a win from the fruits of our labor...Scrap metal Step 13: Has anyone else seen this weird yellowish goo jump out from behind their water pump? I think it might have actually been alive... Step 14: I've seen worse...much worse (top is rear, bottom is front) Step 15: And here in 15 easy steps we have a bare block.
