HEad studs

How much is it for a 7.3 diesel to get head studs from a shop. And if i do decide to tackle it myself how hard is it??

Re: HEad studs

It is labor intesive. I guess it depends on the shop rate, but I would expect to pay for 10+ hours of labor plus the studs.

You can tackle it yourself if you have the tools and a place to do it.. There are several guys that have done some nice write-ups about it..

Re: HEad studs

Yes it would be cheaper than a 6.0. If you brought the truck to BDP the labor to install studs would be around $1500 we pull the motor when we install studs on a 7.3. If we can help just let us know.

Re: HEad studs

Nate at Unlimited Diesel charges $650 for labor + the cost of the studs.

I think you could do it your self with the motor in the truck.

1999.5 F-250 7.3l 4x4 6 spd Ported Heads, Head studs, valve springs, DI Push Rods, DI RR, 38R, Walbro fuel pump, 238cc Injectors from Nate @ Unlimited Diesel and Tuned by Matt @ Gearhead Automotive

Re: HEad studs

Yhe only sticky part is the rear ones on each side. You need to loosen the motor mounts to torque the engine to get it in. Why your in the you really should do the springs and P-rods.
