A number have bought from Clearwater/Odessa. The price is right and no one is complaining, yet...

Thanks guys! I have a price from South Houston Machine for $400+ $250 core plus $60 Shipping each for a total of $1420 for both. My question is what is considered a bad core. If they were good I would not be needing to buy new heads in the first place. Where do they draw the line?

How and where are they cracked? Cracks around the exhaust valve seats are common with 6.0 heads. That you can have bored out and have hardened seats installed.

Clearwater seems to be a good choice. Did they tell you that the heads cannot be machined?

That's what they told me, and by the time they would do the work it would cost as much as the reman's clearwater has without a warranty so I was figuring a warranty is better if I could even have them repaired for the same cost or possibly more

I was also told that clearwater doesn't have any more of the new casting that they're all reman's but I've still heard nothing bad about the reman's
