6.4 both heads cracked

My 6.4 was puking coolant while towing. I finally got it pulled apart, took the heads down to the machine shop and he said both of them are cracked up pretty bad. Ford wants $1400 a piece for them. I am not a happy camper today

I watched the video, he won't be much cheaper than Ford with his core charge. I am not sure I am sold on O rings either. Right now I don't think I could get them shipped here in time anyway, Ford can get them next day. The machine shop is checking one of his connections to see if he can find a good used set.

Got the heads from Ford and they are not reman according to the machine shop guy and I agree that they look brand new so I am pretty happy about that. At least after I get it together it ought to last .

Do they have steel or cast valve guides?
