  • Engine: What’s are the best lifting points on a flat 6

    Has anyone ever removed the flat 6 with the 4 speed transmission still attached on a C cab? What are the best lift points on the engine with the head removed? These not a lot of thread depth and one hold on the block popped out just threading a bolt into it.

    One big head bolt up front.
    One big head bolt out back.

      Will leaving the transmission on be okay? It’s a heavy one as you

        Just curious...what preparations have you made to pull the engine? On a C Cab, I would remove the hood, grille, radiator, radiator support, and the things on the engine that could get banged around, damaged or snag on the way out of the vehicle. Clearing a path to bring the engine out the front keeps from having to lift too high. An engine leveler would also be good to assist by being able to adjust the lifting point with the transmission still hanging on the back. The main thing is to clear a path and make sure all the stuff that needs to be disconnected gets disconnected. (I always seem to forget something.)

        I have always had good luck with using front & rear head bolts.

          Yes, the transmission can be pulled at the same time. No major accidents, which is a first.
