Reply from Gale Banks

I got a call from Peter at Gale Banks last night and had a good long discussion about the engine failure in my '03 6.0. Banks is genuinely concerned about what caused the failure and I promised to do more reseach on my end including trying to get some of the old parts back from the dealer. The other concern is the Filtration Solutions bypass oil filter that I had installed on the truck. I have contacted Filtration Solutions to try and get more info on what impact their system can have on the lubrication system pressure and flow.

Don't know yet, I'm still trying to find out from the filter guy about his stuff but Banks has definitely stepped up to the plate.

Actually it didn't work out at all. I ended up paying $13,000 for a new engine because Ford refused to accept the fact the crankshaft might actually have been defective and broke. The dealer just made matters worse when the demanded all the money up front in cash before they'd fix it. If I had any money left, I'd hire a lawyer but I'm not Bill Gates.

i say that because maybe Banks will re-emburse you for the repairs since they claim their product does not void any warranty and apparently it does at least according to FoMoCo. I really hate it that ford would not pay. there are only two ways i can think of the crank would have failed like that. a defect in the steel when it was forged or an injector took a huge dump filling the cylinder full of fuel and hydro locking the cylinder but instead in broke the crank but usually it will break the piston and rings first unless it was a combination of both. i dont think a chip would cause and injector to fail. let us know what Banks says.

Does the dealership still have the carnage from the original motor? If so you need to tell them they need to take a good long look at the factory LPOP. According to your originial post you may want to have them check into it further.
