Finally studded and worry free!

Bought the truck over 2 years ago with intention of studding it right away but never did till I had to.. Lol. Of coarse it started puking the day after all my egr delete/oil cooler parts came in. So I did the delete and cooler hoping it was just the egr cooler but it was still good. So hooked a gauge to cooling system and head gaskets were blown. I didn't feel like doing them myself so dropped it off wednsday night and it was done Friday afternoon! Talk about quick!! Now im good to go!

Seems like a quick turn around for a stud job. Did they send the heads out to be checked at a machine shop?

Yea I would make sure the heads were done lots of shops jerk off the heads, slap on some gaskets, clean up the heads, and button it back up. Not a good idea.

Not sure how this shop did it. But, Rudy's keeps a few sets of reworked/checked heads on hand and uses those to minimize downtime. This keeps trucks moving on through...

Haha. Well less worry free! I made sure they were sent to a machine shop. When I asked how long he said depends on how busy the machine shop is. He does around 5 of these jobs a month so he's got it down. That's why I brought it there.
