Hey guys took my truck in for what I thought ( and still do) was bad head gaskets. Its a 05 f 350 with 109K that ive owned for 6 mos. I had A after market service contract that stated that it would replace bad head gaskets so I wasnt too worried about the cost. Once my shop took the truck apart they felt that the head gaskets were ok and sent the heads out to be looked at at a machine shop. The machine shop came back and said the heads were cracked at the valve seats all the way to the water jacket and that they were no good. After market warranty company dosnt cover cracked heads or block. So now Im responsible to pay approximately 4k to replace head gaskets and an additional 3200 in new heads from ford. Couple of my questions are this. Im hearing that all the head on these things crack at the valve seats so is it worth it to put new heads on or could I get by with some remans? I also am seeing that some times the head gasket dose not blow but simply lifts, is there anyway to prove this? If some one was to get some reman. heads where would you go? Anyone heard of odessa in Clearwater Fl. They are offering some remans. for 1300$ for the pair. Anyone have any other ideas??? THanks i advance for te help.
