    hello, I need to do head gaskets on my 1990 f250 7.3L idi. this is the first time i have torn apart one of these heads. i was wondering if you had any detailed advice and tips that i might need to know about. i work at a Volvo dealership so i have all the tools needed and equipment. i do not plan on removing the engine. we do have a cherry picker and ill use studs to put the heads on. can you let me know about any gaskets, seals, and O-rings i might need to replace that ive missed. i have the head gasket kit victor reinz hs5869, victor reinz head bolts, fel pro intake gasket kit, and a new motocraft thermostat. anything im missing that i don't know about. i read a post about bleeding the lifters before installation if you could maybe elaborate on that. i have a digital copy of the ford manual i plan on following but i prefer first had advice. thank you in advance

    Thanks Chuck, him and I both know very little on autos. Good suggestion though. Boy when I joined, he and I went at it bad. Now we are friends. Hell we email each other about our gardens! Shhh.
    He still does not understand how the Ipr works and is driven.LOL but I like the old narcissist.
    RGD messaged me twice after my last meltdown. I messaged him saying to stop threatening me. I wasn't going to take his action anymore and messaged Kevin how to unsubscribe from TDS before he threatened me so save it. He messaged me saying the same thing 8 hours later. I told him," I responded to you this morning, now I'm at the beach reading a repeat message leave me alone. I want nothing to do with TDS in its current twisted state. He messaged back I only use TDS as my soapbox, he was giving me an infraction and next time it will be for life. Now read the 6.7 45 mph shake thread. Guy goes completly off, well not quite as bad as I do but it does not get deleted. He needs to go.

    Hey check out " thread closed?" Thread before he sobers up substitutes the word "experts" for the word "doctors". Then I threw in a grease name so he is confused on lithium grease and Lithium bi-polar medicine, deletes thread and sends me packing for life, which I commented about such action against me in other thread.

I will need silicone; I don't know which one RTV ? black or should I get the sensor safe blue?

    Hello,
    I have a 1993 f350 dually idi diesel 7.3l. It's non turbo and I know a guy who has a 6.9 he's scrapping out with a turbo. I was wondering if you knew if the turbo would transfer over at all and if it did how easy would it to be to hook up?

    Hello I am the guy with the question on pulling with an axle ratio of 4.56 with a 5 speed. Does it matter if it is a diesel or gas also? I have the chance to pick up a parts truck with a same rear end but gas.
