Troubles with the new 6.7's already

An electrician I work with keeps replacing the modules for the high beam/ signal light operations. Three of them already. Maybe the extreme cold has something to do with it. in the -30's.

But the 6.7's are the bestest engines ever. Eh you're located in a not so populated state. The dealers down here in Texas at least the one I have gone to have replace engines quiet a few times and not to long after the release of the truck. All engines will have some bad eggs in the cartons. I'm sure the 6.7 will be a great engine just like my 6.4.

For 70 to 80 gs for a new rig the bad eggs should never get in there.

no timing belts but that was the best way to describe it to hotline . And they did say they had reports of cam failures in the early run motors . This truck had been setting on another dealers lot for like 5 months . it is an early build motor . i know when polaris released the 500 atv motor they had camshaft hardening issues where it would wipe the lobes right of . Took them a while to get that corrcected . Maybe ford had a simmilar issue unfortunitly i'm not allowed to tear the motor down to the cam but i'll get some pictues with the cab off and all .Like I said first 6.7 in our shop for this .I was really hoping ford would let me tear it down to the cam but they wouldnt only external inspection allowed . I geuss in a way it is faster for the customer to do whats right and replace the motor . They seem to be handleing this motor totaly diffrent than the prevouis ones .
