Pull the engine out with the converter. Be careful not to damage the input shaft.

Might be easier to take cab off, support engine then pull trans.

Have you tried pulling the glow plugs or injectors and spraying the cylinders with some type of penetrant? Let it soak for a while then try turning the crank both directions?

How is it seized? Ran it out of oil? If so drop the oil pan and unbolt the rods from the crank. Then you can turn it.

It seems the previews owner overheated the fing thing the was water on the pan and th oil is like gum lol. The turbo its stuck and it seems as the turbo blew was feeding the topend with oil so it might have gonne wild.

For that reason we are just going to take it apart completely. the top end gets removed on the truck hoping we can see more clearly why its stuck.

The other engine i got for it its going to be refreshed with bearings rings and cilinder sleves as they are a lot cheaper than new pistons ( im in chile south america) and this way we keep the engine std.

You may be better off pulling the engine with the torque converter attached and buying a new torque converter.
