Bulltet Proof Diesel water bottle test vs. pressure gauge test
Ok....so after I completed the BPD water bottle test (connected to degas bottle- which resulted in a moderate steady stream of bubbles in the water bottle), I decided to go get a couple of quotes from a couple of shops for HG repair.
The shop I was leaning towards using, and which is also pretty much the only place in town that is recommended for 6.0s other than the dealer, pressure checked my system from the degas bottle, which I wittnesed: the gauge needle barely moved...they are telling me that I don't have a problem and that I probably overfilled my degas bottle....This shop pretty much does all the area 6.0s, and I want to believe them, but can I have bubbles in the BPD test and still have ok headgaskets? I asked the shop about the BPD test, and he said they weren't familiar with their specific test, but that when you pressure test the system under load, it will be real obvious, and on my truck...the needle didn't even barely move....I mean, he could have lied and sold me the job...what do you guys think...They seem honest and reliable...I just want to make sure I don't have a problem that grows into a bigger one..
