Pulling Eng.

Recommended Posts

I thought I would start here with the questions of pulling eng. I have heard of raising cab to get it out. Are there any good write ups on the subject?

ISX yanked his out... From what I've seen you need to pull the front off the truck (bumper, radiators, etc) Then drop the oil pan... Then it should come forward after all the other stuff. (Exhaust, fuel lines, electrical, engine mounts, etc)

Yea, the oil pan know I remember. What about supporting the(manual) trans, can it be left intac with the crossmember bolted to the frame?

The only thing I can think of that might be different/harder is that its a 24V..hence, more electronics. The harness kinda sets back down right where it used to go, it is conformed to it it seemed. So the connectors were basically right next to where they went. Not hard when you only have a few connectors lol. If the 24V has more, to the point of confusion, just label them and take pictures. Even then, there are tons of 24V's on this forum that can help you out if you do somehow forget where one goes.Other than that, the rest is overly easy. One thing I figured out was I couldn't go up far enough to get out of the engine mounts, but you can actually take the mount bracket off the engine, just make sure you have the engine jacked up or nothing will be supporting it...

I went and looked at it and listen to it and it sounds to good to be true. It's nice and clean, quite, it's to weird.i am used to having to slice through the bull s---. The guy is young polite got all his drinking days behind him.:smart: All stock no mods. not even the intake or exhaust:hyper: I am stoked about it. Going to pull it out tomorrow I hope.It's a auto, only down side. But I have all new parts. Question, is the apps the same in a auto as a standard?And are the injectors the same in a auto as a standard?

Apps is the same no matter, injectors will be the same if its an SO engine autos and 5 speeds, Ho engines had different injectors 6 speed rigs only.

I'm sure you're all set now JL, but just for the sake of future searching, the 24v is a little taller than the 12v. I'd say about 1". 3/4 of that is in the head, the rest is a slightly taller valve cover.I cheated my 12v out oil pan and all, it was nearly impossible and I had to do all sorts of massaging of the cowl to do it.I put the 24v in panless, and it was pretty easy to then get the oil pickup and pan mounted up. Well, easy relative to lifting the cab or massaging the cowl an extra inch, at any rate....

So what did you put your oil pan on with? A gasket, RTV, etc???

Funny... Most of the gaskets today really don't require any sealant typically... But yeah RTV Black with make it stick and stick for good... :duh:

I had a bad experience with blue RTV. I pulled a repaired engine back out of the boat (I was not a happy camper) because of low oil pressure, dropped the pan expecting to replace the oil pump. I found the oil pickup screen clogged with blue RTV silcone. I guess someone got heavy handed with it. It's been too long, I don't remember any details.I remember liking the rubber neoprene gaskets (BB Chevy) because they could be glued on one side (spray copper sealant) & removed & reinstalled as needed (valve cover gaskets). I don't know if any of this applies to the question at hand.
