05 Rocker carriers on 2007 heads??
2005 6.0, long story short im putting together a new short block assembly and I ended up having to get two new reman heads from Ford.. Went to install the rocker carriers and theres no mounting holes for them on the heads i got. only two holes line up but they are bigger and the lower 4 bolts on the rocker carrier has nothing to bolt to.. ive done some research and found late 06 they changed the heads.. my question is can i adapt the carriers i have to work on these heads or do we need to get new carriers?
it looks like all i need to do is adapt the dowels and get bigger bolts for the two mounting holes? I can see why they no longer need all 8 bolts simply because the head studs provide all the clamping force needed.. but i was hoping to find someone who has come across this before! thanks
