Exclamation 06 heads on an 05 engine????

I bought a motor from an 06 F250.. I have an 05 F250 and my heads are shot. Will these heads work on my engine. I know they changed the bolt size around that time. I would like to send these out to get redone for my engine if they will work. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Keith

as long as the bolt size matches up then yes you can. i think they might even have a dowel that works incase they dont but dont hold me to that. but as far as the head working they will.

Bolt size is the same the dowels are what is different, from January 06 and up the dowel is a 20mm. To use these heads all you need is a stepped dowel to fit your block which should be the old style 18mm dowels.

If someone was going to put the newer 20mm dowel heads on an 18mm block using the special stepped 18/20 dowels... which gaskets are you supposed to use... the 20mm gasket?

OK.. thank you guys.. I still dont quite under stand that if i use the 18/20 stepped dowels, that I have to use the 18mm head gaskets.. just my thinking, but wouldn't it have to be the 20mm ones instead?? I am not a mechanic now so don't hate on me. LOL. But that's just me thinking aloud.

Thanks again,

Keith

Use the gasket size of whatever the head is, the stepped dowel will pinch the gasket.
