Replaced Head Gaskets?

I saw on a Carfax where my truck has had new radiator put in it. My truck is an early job 1 by the way. What was the actual problem with the radiators? Wondering if the head gaskets went as well with the rad. I'm thinking I probably still have the early head gasket design. Might be time to get studded and deleted/wastegate.

The radiators were a big problem. I've got a job three that has had radiator problems and no head gasket problems. If they caught the radiator problem before it ran out of coolant and didn't overheat, it shouldn't be a problem with the head gaskets.

Just would like it to have the updated head gaskets to ease my mind on the 310 tune. Afraid to get on it too hard and blow 'em.

Early build date trucks basically came with 6.0 head gaskets. I have heard there have been 6 or 7 updates to the head gasket design since the early trucks came out.

The radiator failures when people would not notice them, would typically cause EGR cooler failures. Haven't done head gaskets on a 6.4 yet.

there was a TSB about bad thermostats that was killing radiators. I had mine in the shop about 6 months ago and they tested the truck for that problem and replaced them both. 08 Job 2 70k
