Need help guys!! Blown 6.0 and Ford refuses to fix.

Here is a link to the original thread

Need help!! Warrenty says no pay!!!

This is a god friend and he needs some major help with this issue. Long story short, Truck stalled, towed into ford. Ford says no compression, removes head, piston is beat to hell. Inspector comes down, says forein object caused damage, NO PAY. Air Filter is fine, turbo fins are perfect, how else could a "forein object" get in the motor. Have called customer service to no resolve. Whats the next step, does anyone know what to do, who to call, or a good lawyer???

thats what happened to mine, they dropped a screw from HPOP cover down the intake. It smashed up #3 piston, but mine was still drivable. Sounds like you need a lawyer, or do what i did, bite the bullet and take it to a real diesel shop and have it fixed right.

piston

after seeing it in person, it looks like a broke ring to me, the indentions on the piston are small and square like ring debris to me, but what will cause the rings to break like that??
