2005 Ford Excursion, 6.0L, AT, 4X4. Failed head gaskets, 3 failed injectors, weak FICM & Multiple engine oil leaks.
6.0 Powerstroke removed from chassis, Engine moved into Engine room for tear down and inspection. We are confirming failed head gaskets and detailed identification of oil leaks.
Initial peak. Valve covers, Intake, Upper Fuel Filter removed. Just prior to installing on the stand.
Heads are removed along with front and rear covers. No#8 Road Bearing has been inspected. (it is the furthest fromt the oil pump) Now the cleaning and detailed inspection of the block and upper cylinder walls are inspected.
Block gets rotated , cleaned and inspected. Special care is taken and multiple techs inspect for flaws and wear. Noted during this stage we helped this customer decide to perform a enhanced Bullet Proof/Complete reseal. The condition of the cylinder walls and the inspection of the rod bearing indicate a healthy rotating assembly.
We chose a bright Navistar color for the engine. Black or dark colors will not allow identification for any oil leaks in the future. Plus after the deep cleaning surface rusting will be eliminated
Paint is on and cured. The block surface will still receive a razor blade cleaning.
