Re: Head Studs and Gaskets

your warranty voided im assuming?

if not you can always take it to your dealer, go talk to the diesel guy or find a shop where the guy is cool...tell him that their is "$100 on the seat and some replacement parts on the seat i want you to use instead"

Re: Head Studs and Gaskets

If the manager flaged the VIN is oassis there is no luck at another dealer. Best to try and work something out with that dealer.

I have had a dealer here in town warranty about 5 sets of 6.0 HG's and I had them install studs. They have also done several transmissions and some other junk. Hasn't been an issue working with them so far, I did have to do a little sweat talking the first time.

TAG II, Exhaust Air Guide, K&N FIPK, Hood insulation delete, foil delete, SX and A1000 pumps, door dinger delete, COMPOUND trans coolers and a Banks Stinger+++ with the Banks TransCommand and Chrome curb Feelers.

248.9HP 4ft/lbs @ 3,400 RPM (don't forget to divide by 1,002 and carry the 5).

Nothing worse than a good idea that doesn't work.

Re: Head Studs and Gaskets

We have been suppling ARP head studs to our Ford dealer, we are good friends with the head service manager who is also a master diesel mechanic - so he is fully aware of all the problems with these motors. I asked him about it today, he said their personal policy is to replace any heads that I recommend with brand new ones.
