I was actually just watching some 6.0 informational videos on youtube, where this mechanic talks about how the 6.0 valvetrain is of a weak design. Don't know if that is the case or not though. If anyone is interested in watching this guys videos, here is the link. I think some of what he says is true, and kind of interesting, he is a little weird though.

The truck has reworked injectors good for 100hp. I had the heads reworked at the machine shop after it blew hypermax head gaskets.They were $700 ,worth of junk.The machine shop said they had to take off 7 and 9 tlousands.But the shop is a international big truck dealer and repair shop.

Just found out yesterday that it was not a bent push rod.But the hold downds.I found that the bolts have steched. Also a ford tech said you should replace every time. Runs great now.
