Fuel in coolant

I had fuel in my coolant. Purchased master solution kit, oem Ford head gaskets, arp studs etc......
Pulled cab off truck...
Bought high pressure oil line removal tool (thanks to those who helped with info)

Pulled heads last night. I found that the #5 & #7 injectors had different appearance on the portion of the injector that rests within the sleeve. I suspect cracked injector cups on both holes. Can't see any obvious signs of cracks in heads with naked eye. Taking to local machine shop this afternoon. For inspection purpose only! No cutting!

Is there any other location that fuel can get into the cooling system????

If there is diesel fuel in the cooling system, at least one of the heads are cracked. There is no way for an injector cup to cause diesel fuel in the cooling system on the 6.0L.

Agreed. The injector cups may also be cracked, but a head (or both) must be cracked for fuel to get in the coolant.

Ok i got the call that both head are cracked. went to the machine shop, picked them up and plain as day saw the cracks between both intake valves on what was the #4 and #5 cylinders. almost identical on each head.

Can anyone tell me if Odessa cylinder $1400.00 free shipping pair, and Cleawater cylinder $625.00 +$30.00 shipping each in Florida is the same company? Each offers free return shipping for core along with no core $$$ for upto 30 days. Seem to have ok deal with warranty, but different pricing. Or I am open to suggestions. My local dealer quoted $1516.60 each plus core.

See if you can work the dealer. I did today and they gave me fleet price on heads $ 1198.66 each ( 6c3z6049drm). You can also try b&b in Arizona. I talked with Adam 480-649-8243.

I can get you brand new bare castings for $525. each. I haven't actually used the heads that come "ready to install" because I've got my own machinist but I can get heads that are suppossed to be ready to install for $856. each free shipping.

That's a hell of a deal Rob. Are these Ford castings or are they from C.C.H. ?
