What Have I Done?
Well it finally happened. I had a need for a heavier truck then my current OBS F-350. I hated to do it but I had to let my 7.3 go and now I have a 6.0 F-550. I'm excited and I love the new ish truck. It's an 05 with 270K on the truck and 160K on the engine which was a crate engine installed by Ford under a previous owners extended warranty. I love it but I'm reading all of the horror stories about the 6.0 and I'm starting to chew my finger nails. Mainly bad lifters killing the whole engine. This truck has already had ARP studs, a new oil cooler, EGR cooler, New injectors, Fuel regulator blue spring kit, and CTS all done in the last 20K miles with full receipts to prove it.
So my first question in the new not me forum. The heads were machined correctly and OEM gaskets were used when the studs were done. My concern is that they did not put in the shorter 6.4L pushrods. Is this something I should get out and get done ASAP before anything bad happens? Or is it likely fine? The truck runs great and idles super smooth with no vibration at all. Well, at least compared to my old 7.3.
Sorry for the long winded post. I look forward to learning from you guys out here.
