Dealer blew my 6.4L up @ 9000miles

2008 F250 6.4L completely stock with 9000miles on it. The truck ran smooth and no signs of anything after a 200mile trip the day before and the next morning I jumped in and it just crank and crank with no start. I got it towed to the dealer because of a crank no start problem. 2 weeks later the dealer finally said it was the HPFP injector pump. After replacing that, they said they had it running but the pump was "loading up" and they claimed it was some kind of bad sensor. Another week went by and now the dealer said they had to tear down the truck again because they did a compression test and not sure what is wrong with it. My question is did they hydrolock the motor if the tech didn't check the cylinders after replacing the HPFP and fuel was in the cylinders? What are my options because I dont want a rebuilt motor in a truck with only 9000 miles.

Not sure you're gonna get anything but...

I am not sure if a longblock is available yet. Most guys are putting in short blocks and new heads.

Did he hydrolock it? Not sure.

What is the VIN? maybe it has the injector recall on it. What Job # truck do you have?

Its a job 1 truck and there's no recall on the injectors. Its a 2008 which I bought
as a leftover in early 09. I love the truck and would own another one. I just don't its right to have a rebuilt motor with only 9000 miles on the truck. I highly doubt the dealer will do a motor swap as they should do. Basically the dealer doesn't know what happen and are puzzled why it happen. Basically the dealer keeps telling me very little info on what happen as they tried to repair the truck. Has anyone heard of other trucks like this and if so what happen and what option or opinion does anyone have. Thanks for any help I can get.

The problem has been found. A bad fuel pressure switch or sensor inside the valve cover dumped fuel into the motor resulting in a bent rod and # 8 piston won't go all the way up. Post more after dealer hears from FORD.
