Well we figured this would be good for a laugh for everyone so here we go.....

Shawn's truck wasn't running so healthy after the Texas races so we decided to do a little investigating and our findings led us to believe that #6 piston had more than likely failed....AGAIN! And that we were gonna have to put yet another used piston in that hole like was done before our trip down to Maryland and TS last year....LOL

We are both quite impressed that the stupid thing lasted as long as it did! Goes to show that these motors are quite tough actually and can put up with alot of crap! :D

So anyways we got the motor pulled and heads removed and suprise, suprise....#6 piston is toast!! :(

But if all goes well it'll be back in action in a few days and then my truck is coming in the garage for a couple minor improvements and we should be at the Mission, BC races with two stupid fast 6 leakers!! :ford:

Is Shawn's truck still standard bore?

I have a set of STD size ceramic coated pistons that are less then 2 years old...

Can't wait to see your truck run with those elite 430's Tadd sent up.
Yeah hopefully they even work with a crappy stock 05 hpop......LOL

Well all but #6 cylinder is still std bore.....

Our pistons are cut pretty good for lower compression so stock pistons won't work but I'm sure he has enough used parts in the tickle trunk to slap her back together once again!

once upon a time i had fire rings, they broke, a piece went into the hole and beat dents everywhere in the top of the piston, replaced the head gasket but never touched the piston, this hole has been bad for a while and i was just waiting for this.

i hate when guys say my truck never breaks, well my truck does break, and once again we r into it:doh:, oh well, got a couple of used pistons kicking around, shove one in there for the nhrda event in mission, then tear it down and fix proberly:ford:

Will you guys be at the Dyno at BD on Saturday too? Ski season is done so I'll probably head down. Haven't decided if I'll stay overnight or make it a day trip.

Yep, we'll be at the dyno event. We plan on putting my truck on the rollers with the 430's in it and see what it puts out. Should be interesting to say the least.....

Yep, kinda hard to lift the cab with no hoist and in a back garage behind the house.....we aren't called the Rednecks for nothing! LOL

It's pretty easy to pull the motor too! That's how we did it when I put my studs in, kinda sucks doing the tranny but I'm sure the Canucks have it down to a science!

Great job on representing the Blue Oval!!! :ford:
