Well, like all other 6.0 owners...my HG's finally failed (or they could have been bad since I bought the truck 2 months ago). I noticed a little coolant around the coolant cap...checked the pressure with a gauge, and I'm hitting 16psi just cruising around with no load. I guess with 217K miles on the truck, it was bound to happen.
So while I've got the heads off...anything else I should do while I'm in there? I've heard that the 6.4 push rods are something you should really do while you are in there. What about new lifters? I've heard that sometimes they will fail on you...or is that not really an issue?
Here are the things that I've already done to the truck in the last few months since I have owned it.
*New oil cooler
*Updated stainless steel screen under oil cooler
*Blue Spring Mod
*Updated SCT fitting
*Updated Dummy Plugs
*Cat EC1 coolant
Anything else I should do while I'm in there replacing the heads gaskets and installing the ARP studs?
Any tips, trips, or advice would be a huge help. I'm so tires of working on this motor...it seems like it's never ending
