deck the block?

My black onyx head gaskets blew after 1500 miles, and the truck is back in the shop. Now they tell me that the block is 0.004" out of flatness. They said that is the are that is where the headgasket failed. I am told I new a new short block I and told them to figure something else out since that is not going to happen. Anyone know if the block can be decked? Right now the bill is all on the shop as this is the only way I would agree with the black onyx headgaskets the first time.

I don't see why you couldn't deck it, that doesn't sound like much. I really doubt its enough to cause an issue with the push rod length. I'd call a machine shop or two with that information.

I have a feeling that the shop does not want to pull the block off the chassis on their dime. I just want to know if others have a block warped and what was done.

Understandable, but whether the shop has it decked or replaces it, it MUST come out. At that point, seems like decking would be the most cost effective method. Further, I doubt you warped it in 1550 miles, therefore it should have been checked the first time around.

I agree that it should have been check the first time as I would have gone with a engine swap if I new all the damage. Now I have $6000 burned and nothing to show for it. Where for another couple of grand I would have put a cummins in it and been done.
