Head gaskets done?.....

Tried the search function.....but......

Is there a way to tell if the head gaskets have been changed already from just an external look-see?

Well if you see a nut on a stud instead of head bolt that would be one way but if they were redone using stock head bolts, no there isnt.

get a oasis report from any local ford dealer, that would tell if they were done under warranty
