Getting ready to pull the engine on a 05' 6.0 PSD to change the cam. Just wondering if I have to pull the cab ? or can I just pull the engine the old fashion way ?
I pull cabs on these trucks whenever any repair calls for removal of either the cylinder heads or the engine itself. If you have access to a two-post lift, I would pull the cab without even thinking about it. The relative simplicity of it, and how much more cleanly the job will go makes it worth it. Not to mention your back will thank you for it.

Another halphast repair
OUCH!!! I don't envy you one bit. You might want to add an oil cooler to your shopping list too. You are aware that the camshaft is literally the LAST part of the engine that comes out, RIGHT?

I work in a shop in Denver, but no two post lift.
I do know the cam comes out last. I have access to International web site but not Ford.
I been trusting you guys for much of my knowledge.
Gotta pull the crank and I know not to take off the flange.
I will add the cooler, I think i like the one from bulletproof,
I don't know much about the maintenance. Only had it two weeks before the trouble started. (cranks no start)
Ford dealer in Fort Collins showed me a Oasis report. Most service was done between 3500 miles to 4500. All ford stuff. Still running premium gold Anti freeze. EGR cooler only part replaced in 213,000 miles.
Oh yeah the OEM cam is $637.00 Front cover (LPOP) $504.00 ARP Head studs $498.00
16 new lifters $509.00 and so on
Thanks for all the info
Hope to have it back on the road after Christmas.
