Bad lifter, pictures inside

This is from a 03 f450 with the 6.0. A disgruntled employee drove the truck at max speed for many miles and then died, it was a crank no start when I got my hands on it. Oil filter would not fill up with oil, removed low pressure pump to find which appeared to be impressions from needle bearings. After making the decision to dig deeper this is what I found at cylinder 1 lifter. Enjoy the pictures thinking of a nightmare this would be if it happened to your rig.

Haha I also work for him, the truck doesn't make money when it's down so sometimes you have to bite the bullet. Plus I am 6x cheaper than ford!!

I'm just starting to pull a 6.0L out of a E-series that I'm guessing will be in the same shape. Bought it with the low pressure pump already pulled and with very similar damage. Did your crank also get chewed up?

Nope crank is fine and the cam is In good shape no scoring or damage but it's still being replaced along with new lifters.

cool.....I'm very curious to open mine up and see what went wrong inside. Did you loose a rocker arm or did the lifter just come apart? I've never heard mine run and bought it after the original owner decided they couldn't fix it or afford to fix it. I was expecting the worst (which I still might have) but glad to hear yours didn't munch the whole bottom end.

No the lifter just broke, everything else is fine it's odd I expected to see more damage.
