Sounds like it's most likely gonna get a new engine if anything is out of spec. then ford/international wants the engine to put in another truck or dyno to find the noise.

Yeah, I didn't do the job personally, but supposably it can be up in the air in a hour. The other mechanic did it, but he wasn't very motivated that day, so it took about 4 hours, but it was also our first time and we didn't wanna break anything. The stupid cage bolts break/turn on the body mounts and as always ford makes it a PITA to get to, but we finally got a wrench into the tube support so we could get the last one loose, the rest came out, but they're known to break I guess, especially if you use an impact, but he did it all with a breaker bar (stupid locktight) and one still broke. There we quite a few connectors, diconnects for the half dozen coolers on the front, gotta pull the master cyl. P/S pump etc. all the usual stuff if you were doing a body swap. But yes it is essentially made to be easier, if you tried it on a 6.0 or 7.3 it would be bad b/c it wasn't designed that way. The 6.4 ford made bigger then the hood opening (oops) so.... this is the future I guess (Ford does this kinda crap b/c they don't want shade tree mechanics tinkering with there engine, so they do make it hard on purpose to deter ppl, but even with all the special tools and manuals and what not, it's still a PITA for us to) There is a reason why the actual build engineers don't go out to the shops when things like this happen, they'd get lynch'd, instead they send what they call, "field service engineers"

Probably the easiest way to post them is to put them in a gallery. You can create on in your user cp, then upload the pics. After they are in your gallery, you will see a link under each pic saying "forum codes. for displaying in a post". Click on this, copy the code, then you can paste that code in a post, and it will show up as the picture.

Wow, 4 hours is even impressive! I would love doing something like that. Looks like it will be much easier to work on with the cab off. Isn't the cab generally removed for major work on the 6.0 also?

No, I've pulled heads on a 6.0 in the truck, most ppl pull the engine out to do any major work like heads, it's suppose to be easier I guess. You can do a lot of engine work "engine in truck" on the 6.0, no real need to remove the cab. The 6.0 looks bad, but once you get the crap tore off on top the engine is like a foot down and looks so tiny, especially with it's giant heads off.

Did the customer keep the truck? If I saw my new truck without a Cab I think I may be wanting another one!

I personally would rather have the cab removed and be guaranteed the work was done right rather than having corners cut or contamination due to working in tight spaces. I know I feel a lot better about my work when it's right in front of me rather than somewhere that's hard to reach or hard to clean up properly.

Yeah the customer had been coming in about 3 times a day. He kinda did want Ford to buy it back, but they wouldn't give him any money for the chrome, box cover, toolbox, mudflaps, 5th wheel, etc. (any accesories that were put on) plus I think they dock $0.30 a mile, so he'd loose about $4500 dollars, plus he had gotten a good dent in left rear of the box and a cracked windsheild already. I guess if you pull off the front clip you are supposed to be able to remove the engine, it's all and all like working on a van, except there's no doghouse in a truck, so they just figure why not yank the whole cab.
