Well, kind of. The head gasket repair was under warranty, but I requested that they send the heads to a machine shop to pressure test them and check for cracks, at my expense. They took them to Inland Truck here in Wichita. They say they have used them for quite awhile and have been happy with them.

I told them even if it costs me, I want them checked over very good, and a valve job if needed. I was told that the heads were in good shape and did not need a valve job, and flatness was within ford spec. So now I guess it's time to see if the repair lasts. I sure hope so, because it won't be under warranty next time.

Well let's hope for the best. I'm up near Topeka and looking for a good shop myself.
My '03 F550 started overheating on a trip a while back and the Ford Dealer in Colorado checked it out. They said it needed a new EGR cooler since the temp deltas were beyond spec.
I'll tear it down and put it back together myself in my shop but I need a good head service shop to service and check the heads. I'll call Inman and see if they recommend somebody up here or I'll take them down to Wichita. At this point I'm gathering the parts to address as many issues as possible while I have her apart.

So far, yes they have. I have seen no signs at all of a leaky head gasket again so hopefully all will continue to be good. I am still running a tune for non-studded trucks, but that will be changing soon. I have an MTW stage 1 turbo on the way and plan on changing tunes to get more power.

How about yours?
