Re: Pushing coolant with fire ringed heads!!!

Damn...sorry to hear about your luck.

Chalk up another horror story of people that have used rings and had them fail.

I hope you can get it resolved without it costing a bunch of money.

Re: Pushing coolant with fire ringed heads!!!

hmmm..I have heard of it...

Once again, fire rings will not cure all problems that the 6.0 may have...just like studs wont prevent puking..

Re: Pushing coolant with fire ringed heads!!!

I had rung heads and my truck puked, but I had bottom end issues, it wasn't the gaskets or rings..the problem might not be the rings, whats the oil temp vs. coolant temp

Not all fire ring kits are created equal.

All of the kits WOP has done are still holding great.

Mmmm...could the procedure for stud torquing have an effect on the quality of hold that a set of rings has?

Re: Pushing coolant with fire ringed heads!!!

I think everything has to work in conjunction perfectly. Getting the perfect amount of crush on that fire ring is vital, you want to effectivley crush that gasket and seal the combustion chamber while not loosing any clamping force on the paper of the gasket. Especially on an engine design that is running just 10 bolts per cylinder. The machining needs to be perfect (WOP prefers to machine all heads in-house), the combination of fire ring size and gasket style are very important as well.
