Not looking too awful bad in there.

This is the side that will make me cry to try and get to the up pipe bolts. My thinking is to loosen the bolts at the manifold to make easier removal/installation of the turbo and new turbo base up top

Stuff was stacking up pretty fast.

So far:
Both fender wells
radiator cover
Air cleaner elbow
S&B filter and box
Cold side pipe
Upper radiator hose
Radiator overflow
Wiring harness from engine left side
right fender splash guard
turbo inlet bellows
Partial removal of lower rad hose
   Now working on the fan and shroud removal

My technique to loosen the fan nut from the H2O pump is to jam the pulley, then smack the big wrench on the nut and hope for the best. I wish there was a better way, but I don't know it.

And, of course, I'm taking copious notes...

THis will ensure I forget a couple of things and do something out of proper sequence!

And

What do you all think of the pics? I'd say, about the same, nothing great, but gets the job done.

Might as well take the front stack off and give yourself some room to actually get at things better.....don't forget that the new camera focuses where you place the little rectangle and push the button half way down if it's set to auto focus - otherwise you'll need to focus old school by twisting that there lens some.......

I believe there is a special spanner wrench or something for that...

Part of me fears that once apart this thing will never see the light of day. It will get rolled over to SqD?s former resting place and gather dust for years. It will be the impetus for a gasser truck replacement and Don will justify it by saying the pre rangers will finish it and it will be their first vehicle.

Except the pre rangers are chips off the old block and are better at blowing stuff up and tearing stuff apart and alas will sit the duramax until Christ?s return

I own it

But it's just a wrench, with some pins on one flat????

But

I watched the Fleece Diesel vid about how to do this, and they had this cool whench that you actually smacked on like driving a spike in the ground, then through some mechanical linkage, it twisted the nut free...

Or just promote Ken & with that H must be within earshot of him at all times so he?s cowering in a corner.  :tongue:

So BD, what is the timeline on this and is the fan off yet?

It?s because the amount of money I payed for the site I think.  Don messaged and said I get three uses of the term.  However I think like in monopoly you can buy out of jail, so if Tex wants to hit that pay now button I am sure Don would let home back lol

For once, I actually agree with you

Ken is promoted.

His new job is the same as before with the added responsibility of overseeing the red neck from Texas

I mean, lets face it no one actually gets fired here, they just accumulate black marks

Some of you have more black spots than a dalmation

So, Ken, get that guy from that "T" state under control, or else you're fired too!

And you: Your privileges are rescinded effective yesterday

Which places you in a warning status from the observation yesterday that started all this and DOTed up my new thread

Now all of ya's: Shut yer yaps

We have harmonic balancers to pull!

So, Ken sent me off to YouTube land where I watched in horror the vids about how to replace a Duramax water pump

One word: HOLY CRAP!

That's a lot of business going on!

So just now I have ordered a 36mm 12 pt socket, a Lisle tool, and a big 3/4" breaker bar. (Mine is down at the farm, and effective yesterday, I have no transportation except for the Tiger.

Everyone done?

Can I post up some build stuff?

Pretty please?

OK gave it about 10 hours today. Knee being swollen and the brisk temps up until noon slowed me down, but from noon to around 1900, I had a clear field of running.

This is a pretty big job, really!

With the discussion about replacing the H2O pump, and my realizing I was short some critical toolage, I got those ordered this morning. Had to make it a two day delivery, but the Amazon peeps are saying I should see most of it tomorrow.

So, I just got right in and continued stripping things away to yield a clear view of the CP4A, and by day's end I had it!

Straight away, I pulled the IC pipes.

Then after seeing how some people just get a really big punch and strike the nut on one of the flats to remove the fan, I gave it a try. Would you know, the first whack I gave it loosened it!

I had made this mega punch from some bar stock some years ago, and it still works today

After pulling some more plastic clips and disconnecting the transmission control module, the top of the fan shroud came right out

After that, I lifted the fan and shroud out as a unit. That fan is a heavy unit!

Next up, I pulled the right alternator mount

I had already pulled the AC pump and laid it off to the side without having to disconnect any lines

Next I went for the six very hard to get to, and hard to get out up-pipe to turbo bolts. It took a total of maybe 80-90 minutes, but finally all of them yielded. I came up with this strange ratchet which can make the necessary turn to get you some clearance.

To do the job, get a big cushion to lay on while you spend some considerable time on your belly in the engine bay. THen pull the right wheel, and work on all of the bolts you can not get from the top from a seated position as far inside the wheel well as you can squeeze.

More and more hardware. I threaded a lot of bolts back into their original holes, but the loose ones are bagged and tagged!

Remember the half page of notes from yesterday?

THe list grew some, but If I just work backwards through the list when I get the new stuff installed, I shouldn't miss anything.

I wiped down everything plastic with a plastic treatment to help it crack, chip, peel and fail much sooner all the while making me feel as though I did the exact opposite!

I had as a goal to have everything torn down and even the turbo removed.

Now the turbo is almost completely unbolted, lacking only the oil drain line. I can't figure it out, so I called it right there. I'll you-tube it in the morning and get the stocker out immediately. Then next is line removal, then it's CP3 time!
