Well they only sent me 1 replacement stud so I went ahead and just replaced it hoping that it hadn't warped the head or ruined the gasket and to my surprise everything worked out pretty well. Will have to say that trying to get the torque wrench in there was a lot bigger hassle than I imagined it would have been. ended up taking the inner fender out and got it torqued up. All the other bolts were still torqued to spec so here's hoping it stays that way. I did beat on it to see if it would hold up and it never missed a lick.

Should be fine. That's why I asked if you REALLY were going to redo the whole job plus some for none broken stud. If it was my truck I would have done the same thing and just replace the broken one.

yeah it just had me worried because the sound I was hearing I'm pretty sure was the head leaking between it and the block. It wasn't a typical sound from exhaust leak etc... just had me worried that it would of blew out the gasket or something.

You would probably have had a cylinder contribution code and quite a bit of pressure in the degas bottle if that were the case.

yeah it was puking but it would only do it if you got over 20 psi

That might have worked but I didn't have one. Will have to add one to my box

Um....2 things:

1. Where was the puking information in this thread BEFORE you just replaced the stud?? If it really was puking and had the broken stud then the gasket surface probably has been compromised. Torqueing it down will help a little, but it most likely will need a new HG to fully fix the puking issue.

2. That adapter works great for what it was designed for......stock head bolts. It was designed to aid in the ability to torque the bolts the final 2 90 degree cycles. It was also developed by a Ford tech that worked primarily on ambulances. It was NOT intended to be used to achieve a certain and specific torque value. It can be used but you need to read up on torque multiplication and procedure to ensure the spec is correct if using it. You also will need a 3/4 inch torque wrench for that adapter. Not exactly cheap, or something everyone has in their tool box.

I thought i had mentioned it before but I didn't. That was one of my concerns from the broken stud and wanting to pull the head back off. I ran another exhaust gas test (when I found the broken stud) and didn't see any change in color at all. It only puked on me one time that I'm sure of. I'll run another test on it when I get back home in a couple weeks and see. My wife says that it has been driving fine and not losing power like it was when the first gasket blew.

All temps are staying where they should. I've been adamant to her about keeping an eye on the EOT, ECT and EGT. So far nothing has been out of the ordinary and she has been pulling her horse trailer just about every day since I've been gone.

There are no signs of anymore puking and the level is still the same as it was when I last topped it off before coming to work.
