it happens the fix is $$

i would want to see for myself
they may be trying to point the blame somewhere else ? and if it all proves to be true and the block is warped i would question if it wasn't in the same condition the first go around

they have to pull the whole motor apart to fix the block not sure what I would do at that point or if the warranty will cover it and if so just throw a short black at you

Ask them how they know the block is warped. Like ZMANN said, they might be trying to throw the blame at something else when they screwed the HG install last time.

What head gaskets did they use? They can't diagnose a "warped block" without removing the heads. If it actually has a warped block, they should have told you that before they installed the heads when they did the repair.

I have to agree no competent shop is going to do heads without checking for flatness of the heads and the block that they will have to seal on.
If nothing else at least lay a straight edge on them.

Saw truck today heads are removed, cab off AGAIN. They sent heads out to be pressure check. Waiting to hear back for ext. Warranty on sending out block to be check. The shop did say if they pull block that I may want to replace the main bearing at my cost. I can't believe thwy would consider reusing they. I do plan to replace the main bearing, but what else should I replace on block?
