Also... I wouldn't bother studding an ambulance... these morons are going to total the thing before it wears out! lol

But seriously.. the amount of work it would take... ugh.

Need to diagnose further, make sure its not fuel. dont ever assume, bubble test the fuel system before you tear, especially on an econo, lol. Yes, I would stud it, a headbolted 6.0 is a failed head gasket waiting to happen, seriously. need any tech assist., PM me

How exactely are you going to sell that to an owner? The head gaskets haven't failed yet... but you should spend an *** load of money repairing it on 60 ambulances because it may fail?

These trucks are still supposed to be money makers...

Maybe it's just me... As odd as this sounds... granted we get rid of our trucks at 150k miles... but we have yet to do a head gasket. That could just be luck.. I know it is a weak point, but we haven't experienced it yet.

I'm not sure how you would sell it to the owner,hehe, I was comparing apples to oranges, the ambulance platform is a different animal, but I see super-duty's every week that have been maintained pretty well, experience a blown head gasket. In fact my website recieves an average of 150 hits, and growing, a week with the key words : blown head gasket 6.0, 6.0 egr cooler failure, 6.0 loosing coolant, etc., so I know there's at least that many cooling system failures a week, lol. My guess is that an ambulance is PM'd regularly and impecably? for instance, most owners dont maintain their cooling system properly, this has adverse effects on the sealing ablities of the head gasket. I have seen deck surfaces that looked like hell because of corrosion/rust due to poor maintenence. you dont see these failures on the intertrashional medium dutys near as much as you do the ford trucks because they dont have near the HP and TQ ratings, this equals heat, heat equals death. ambulance chassis are DE-TUNED. this is FOMOCO's way of helping to protect themselves from further lawsuits

You can test the oil cooler by removing the oil temp sending unit and pumping the cooling system, if it pushes oil out, prolly got a leak in the cooler.
