as for the injector gasket.. when I go to the website it says that's not right one for my truck..

https://parts.autonationfordwhitebea...kit-3c3z9229aa

It says "This part does not fit your 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty" The header says that's the kit for the 08-2010 will the 6.4 kit work on the 6.0?
Mahle also sells the reseal kit. That's what I used. Remember you need to replace the crush washers at the tip of the injectors as well.

If you have stiction symptoms and a couple of hours I'd recommend this procedure. My truck feels noticeably smoother. I changed so much **** so anything might be the reason, I personally believe this procedure is what made the difference though. One point he doesn't mention is that you need to reset the nut back into the shaft, on the flat extension use cutting pliers to press the nut extension against the bolt so it doesn't back-up later. Do one by one and copy the amount of bolt left after tightening from another injector. The torque isn't important but the bolts are so tiny you could easily break one by stretching it too much.

We unfortunately get that often. The online catalog is hosted by a third party, and their VIN filtering does not seem to jive well with updated part numbers. We do have many of these in our "Powerstroke" section, but the hosting company has had glitches with that as well lately.

BTW, thanks for the business!

Oh hey.. no I got side tracked a bit fixing my other 6.0 in my van which I've been daily driving and making excuses because it's hot out side in FL.. I also ran down to Ft Myers to pick up a Duramax engine for his 02 3500.

It's now close though.. Both heads are on it and everything is installed. I still have the high pressure oil pump cover off to reseal and I just took the oil cooler set up out of the truck today. I have to watch some vids on how to take all that apart and put it back together..

Anyway the hard part is now done, probably 2 or 3 more days of me working on it and it should be wrapped up. I added a picture of it's current status.. So as I say another 2 or 3 days of me piddling with it.. lol

edit for the record, for those doing this job in cab.. removing the drivers side motor mount is the way to go.. I had zero issues doing that, I was able to lower the engine to get to everything on the passenger side and even raised it a bit higher to do stuff on the drivers side.. Also I removed the inner fenders because it really wasn't that hard and gives you easy access to some areas..

Granted, I only flipped through the first half of the posts, but like has already been mentioned, you get what you pay for.

See signature quote.

People never have enough time/money to do the job right, but somehow they always find the time/money to do it twice

FWIW those blue paper towels leave a LOT of lint behind. Pick up a bag of cheap microfiber towels for final cleanup, especially in everything oil related like cooler sump and HPOP

It runs.. finally... lol

Took me quite a bit longer than I expected it to take but that was mostly due to waiting for parts and not wanting to work on it in 90 degree heat..


When I said it would be running a week or so back... I had it almost together and was trying to hook up the IPR wire to the sensor and it wouldn't go on.. so I look at the plug and realize the plug was broken inside. it was missing all the plastic around the prongs..

I ended up having to order a new plug and waited for that to show up. In the meantime I looked at everything I could think of to make sure it's all good. I get the plug wire it in and I'm putting the oil filter canister/fuel block on the intake when I realized the Oil Filter Housing Return Tube is broken at the top from someone trying to jam the wrong filter on it.. arrrggg how did I miss that?

So once again I had to order the part and wait... got it in yesterday put everything together, turn the key to prime the fuel and fuel is dumping all over the ground... ahhhhh

I check all the fuel lines they are good.. I'm for the life of me thinking WTF.. why is it leaking fuel out the back of the engine... It then dawned on me that the heads were reversible and I bet there was fuel plug on the back side of the heads. Yep.. confirmed I didn't put the plugs in the back of the heads.. I saw the plugs with my head gasket kit but had no idea what they were.

Well I found out the hard way what they were and let me tell you.. they are not easy to put on with the cab on the truck...

Anyway after that issue was solved and a bunch of turning the engine over it fired up and purrs like a kitten..

On plus side having never done any serious work on a diesel before, I learned a hell of a lot and I'm not so scared of these motors being some sort of voodoo magic.. I'm sure I could do the next one much, much faster now..
