It's a bit tight in there, eh? It's quite a chore to get the intake manifold off without removing the head from the rig. You can do that, just remove intake/head/exhaust man as a unit. With that assy removed, the block is a bit "easier" to remove.Finally getting around to pulling the engine out of this truck today. I hope the sorry SOB that designed this vehicle is dead and I hope he died a miserable death. That is all.
