Thanks guys. Yeah, I want to see what those rods look like too.

I found the first casualty from drag racing and sled pulling.....drivers side motor mount was WASTED. Broken completely in half. Only the little hook was holding the motor from twisting up. Funny...I never noticed it at the track or driving around.

Thank you Henry. 5' of steel, eh? Oyvey. Would just bracing the drivers side of the motor with wood work, too?
I found a 14mm hex today, so for the hell of it I gave it a try with my bar and a pipe. No joy. You aint kidding...those SOBs are tight...and I thought the balancer bolt was a joy.

You will need a way to hold the motor to keep it from turning to break those loose (or one heck of an impact gun). Henry's suggestion of making the flexplate holder works well and is cheap.

I was also sick but at least I was functional (held up with sudefed) from Wednesday to Saturday. I hate driving when I feel like crap, even worse trying to wrench.

Thanks John. What air gun would you guys recommend? Maybe I can borrow one from someone on my route for an evening.

I used a 650 ft/lb impact and the air pressure was at 160 psi and just got them out. The balancer bolt is 208 ft/lbs the flywheel bolts have to be around 500 I would think.

Wow. Better eat my Wheaties. The specs say 58ftlbs + 60* + 60*

Thanks for the tips...I'll get on the "outrigger" as soon as I can.

Oh yeah, looks like engine has "C" headgaskets. There are two holes in the tab sticking out on the pass side.

Kole and I gave it a try again tonight. Used a 2ft piece of 2x10 braced under the drivers side exhaust manifold, and breaker bar/pipe combo. We broke all 8 bolts loose, no problems. Go figure. Got the balancer bolt done, too. Gotta go buy a better engine stand somewhere tomorrow.

Also...a pic of the broken motor mount. Split clean thru.

Looks good Tom ! make sure you check protrusion before you tear the pistons out of the block , you may not be able to see how bent the rods were , mine were barely bent visually but failed a protrusion test by alot . Its not Nec but i am sure you are curious to find out .

Tom, the number of holes isn't what designates the gasket thickness, it's the position and shape of the hole. Here's a thread that explains it with pictures: http://www.duramaxdiesels.com/forum/...ead.php?t=6148

Yep. When I got the first one broke loose, I about cheered. Gotta love low-tech and cheap (the wood brace). Kole comes over looking like, "Oh that didnt look too tough"....until he balanced his whole weight on the bar and couldnt move it. Silly kids. Took both of us to break the others loose. Nice working with my son. Im glad he's taking interest in this.

THANK YOU! I tried to find the gasket info and couldnt! Heres a pic of the pass side. Looks like a "2" and a "6" to me, which looks like "B". Am I reading that correct?

I wondered what the 6 and 7 meant in Josh's link...it wasnt listed. Right and left...makes sense.

I think it designates right and left. You can't see the little R and L on the head gasket with the head installed, and that's what the LML head gasket selection information Henry just posted says they mean.
