    Probably if you read Ford's SOP...it will say remove the CAB!!...That is how you do a lot with the Diesel engine...no joke...

    Seriously, to work on the Diesel engine, Ford says take the Cab off. 6 bolts and 4 wiring harnesses...lift it off. The way they like to pack the "under the hood area"........

    My 6.8 V10 is a gas engine. Never seen a V10 diesel. Am I missing something?

    NO, I am just doing a fun compairson.......

    Ford's SOP....standard operating procedure....says to remove the CAB to do LOTS of work on the Diesel engine....The guy asked how to get to the spark plugs....if you can't get to the plugs from the top...maybe taking the cab off will work.

    Ken, kind of like on some chevy trucks fuel pump replace. Easier to remove the bed than drop the tank :laugh: I knew what you were saying ;)

    I agree with you Nash...have replaced a few pumps..... Some manufactures even put a access in the truck bed..they all should.
