Soon to be studed

Droped my truck off at 8:15 this morning for studs. Said it'll be a week, first time they've done studs. (local ford dealer). YA WHO. I think it might be time for some truck nuts.

should get your heads checked while there off to prevent future blown Hg's and make sure the dealer knows the torque on those studs

So your truck is going to be the test mule? That sucks...I wish you the best!

Tech said the heads will be tested, I have confidence in the tech to get it right. It was either the dealer or a small shop in town and they've never done studs either and no diesel tech.

I had mine done at a Ford dealer by a diesel tech who seems to know what he's doing... I puked coolant on the ride home. Its back at the dealer now again for more coolant coming out. Hopefully it'll hold its own fluids someday...a

Stoped by the dealership today to check the progress on the studs, they were cleaning the block. And the heads came back flat and solid that makes me feel good.

Sounds good and I hope it works out. I'm a firm believer that if your trucks got any miles on it, so to speak that a person should spend a few hundred bucks and have the heads milled before re-installing. That way you KNOW... Like I said chances are you will be fine, its just peace of mind to know for sure.

Sounds like it to me. Milling the heads is just taking a small amount of material off the face of the head to guarantee they're true. Sounds like you're good to go!
