Newbie here. Haven't bought my truck yet. Im just doing the research. MAN there is a lot to worry about...
Ive pretty much settled on a 6.0 because the "problems" seem like they have clear symptoms to look out for which means if your diligent, then you can fix things before they go too far south.
I have a question, I read (can't remember who's ) post that said to do the O-ring process when doing the head gaskets. What is that exactly? Is it literally just replacing every O-ring on the truck at that time or specifically O-rings on the fuel injectors etc because you have the heads out, you might as well kind of thing.
Or are there specifically O-rings on the heads that should be replaced or added? I'm just trying to get my self as "learned up" as I can before I jump in the deep end and buy one of these monsters....
Cheers everyone! Read through the whole Coolant Thread and boy is there a lot of good info in there. Thanks!
you may want to post up in the general section or use the search function. To answer your question, o-rings on the heads are usually in reference to having grooves cut around the valves on each cylinder. O rings are installed in the grooves prior to cylinder head installation, which compress and provide a better seal when the heads are torqued.
