just an idea, how hard are these motor to pull i was thinking i need to put a new clutch in sure would be easier to work on the motor out of the truck. will the motor pull out the top of the engine compartment. thanks
Sure will. Remove everything off the motor as seen in my above pic (crank pulley will "touch" radiator if left on) and it will come right out the top. That pic is right before I put it in my truck.
These things dressed are heavy so I used a fork lift, but a heavy duty engine hoist will work fine.
i remeber you saying you had headgasket troubles lately, and you got studs, did you pull the engine to change it with studs or did you manage to do it with out pulling it?
