Valve Guides

Valve guides, what are they and why the hell does my engine not have them. Is this something I can go back to ford with. Or am I on my own?

I'm in now for substantial repairs and mechanic tells me there were in the tens of thousands of 250's produced in the beginning that went out without them. To small a number for a recall but detrimental non the less. My vin fits in that time frame. Is this mechanic wrong??

Probably not. Sounds like the retarded bean counters/engineers got their fingers in on an idea that "if we get rid of the valve guides, we could save some money." So I'm going to assume Ford tried to case harden the through holes of the head instead of installing real valve guides. And now you end up with your situation.

It's always a good idea on paper!! They prob wanted see if they could slip it through at the consumers expense not theirs. I have to tell you I'm shell shocked I'm $6,000 to $8,000 in repairs, haven't received final bill, I'm thinking seriously on getting rid of it or burning it!!!

I dont blame you. This is one of many reasons why I bought a 7.3. Emissions crap is reason #1 why newer diesels have such a higher failure rate than those of old.

Nail on the head, bullseye!!!! And the funny thing is that the average diesel burns cleaner than a gas engine. Now I hear that they are going to add yet another filter, because of ammonia produced from the additives. Between fuel prices, additive prices, fuel prices, and repair prices the average won't be able to afford a nice rig anymore!!! Prob what they are trying to do.

Its funny nowadays people will say "oh 80k miles is a lot of miles on that truck. Better stay away." Mines got 416k on it. Granted engine was replaced at........305k.

Btw, there are a few people that have completely converted a 6.4 and 6.7 interior/exterior on to an a SD 7.3 chassis so they have the looks of new but reliability of old. You'd be surprised at how much stuff is a direct bolt on for new parts onto older trucks. Heck a 2013 cab and bed are still a direct bolt on to a '99. Doors are also direct bolt on.
