finally got her top off

A word of advice before you go in. PRESSURE WASH lots. If you dont have one spend 5 bucks on the engine alone. Hit every corner and oriface you can find. Hit the exhaust manifolds hard. Wire brush em. As soon as you lift those heads the scale on the manifolds will drop into your cylinders. BAD..
Has anyone seen a chart like they have in the back of Haynes manuals with spark plugs but for injecors?
I am working on a base engine fault 0278 which I suspect was a bad gasket since #6 and #4 kinda sucked contributuion wise. Pistons look awsome. Cylinders still have hach marks.
Need to magnoflux the heads for cracks and go from there.

Is the HPOP rebuildable or do I buy a new one?

I'm off to chase moose in a 7.3l for the next few days. Take a moment on the 11th for the boys that fell for you.

I wish both of you good luck with your rebuilds. I have been there but had someone else do it and it was expensive that way, hopefully your work will be cheaper. The shop I used is a cab off only place.
