Just send them to a shop, a REPUTABLE shop that knows 6.0 heads.

I don't mean to sound like a smartazz but did you buy heads not knowing if they were good or not or even if they were 6.0L heads?

I can clearly see cracks between the valves just from the pics. While some cracks in these heads are "normal" those look the be discolored around the crack like something was coming thru like coolant or fuel.

Bought them here off the org.
Purchased them as good 6.0 heads.
Since I have never seen 6.0 heads before, I asked the members here if they could identify these heads as what I was told I was purchasing. I have purchased many things on the net over the years. Sometimes you get what you are told you are buying, sometimes you don't. Just checking.
Thanks for your input, it cleared things up.

I am going to clean these up, and take more pics.
Since it sounds like you know what you are looking at, I will send you some pics thru PM if you don't mind. Would hate to pay to have these shipped to a machine shop, only to tell me they are junk.
