new to diesels new to fourm

ok let me start off by saying that i am diesel dumb i do however work on gas motors of all kinds.... whell i tinker with just about anything except diesels but i went and bought an 05 f350 6.0 . and had it one month and took it by a local diesel shop just to have them check it out . and they told me that it was an injector cup cracked. so i called and mabe said alot of things to dealership that i shouldnt have lol. but they hooked me up tho they set me up with and warrenty and they said they would cover the rest.(pretty good huh ?) but neways one thing led to another and come to find out the head was cracked . ok and i am getting them to install head studs while they have the motor out. whell after the shop having my truck for 3mth!!!!!! they told me that it should b done nxt week. and my question is . is there anything i can do or have them do while they have the motor out to help the 6.0 ? the egr cooler has been deleted so anything else ?

p.s i dnt have alot of money but im willing to use the credit card if they r anything i need to do now that i cnt do with the motor in .

Up date the STC fitting to the new design. 2005 engines with the 2 part STC fitting will leave you by the side of the road one day when it blows apart. With a head job I hope you will get new standpipes and dummy plugs, if not spend the cash now. All of this for about $250 BTW all of this can be done with the engine in the truck,but it's a lot easier with it torn down this far all ready. I am sure others will have more ideas.

The STC (Snap To Connect fitting) is the connector that connects your high-pressure oil pump to your high-pressure oil distribution system. A 6.0 uses high-pressure oil in a pseudo hydraulic power capacity to drive the fuel injectors. This fitting came into use in 2005 MY engines and has a history of spontaneously disassembling it’s self at the least opportune time. This failure is usually preceded by hot start problems. Ford has released an updated replacement for the STC fitting that will solve these issues. The standpipes and dummy plugs screw into the high-pressure oil rail under the valve cover and for lack of a better description are high-pressure oil distribution components. These devices have o-rings on them that deteriorate with heat and time and cause high-pressure oil leaks. The money you spend replacing these now will only be a tiny fraction of what you will spend to t-shoot and repair the problem later down the road. Anymore questions just ask, oh and check out the links I provided.

HOLY PRICE GOUGING batman!
Yeah, look but don't buy them there. Call Tousley Ford to save yourself a boatload of cash. 800-328-9552. Just have your VIN number when you call and tell them what p[arts you want. They know their stuff.

Don't replace just o-rings (if you could find them). The parts themselves changed in design to allow for a better seal. Buy new.
