6.0L Powerstroke Head Repair Kit. Winner Motor Top 20 Tools Award 2015.
Each year Motor Magazine selects the Top 20 most innovative new tools in the automotive industry. We are pleased to announce that the 6.0L Powerstroke Head Repair kit was selected from thousands of new tools and products to receive this highly coveted award for 2015.My coolant degas bottle is full of diesel fuel! As the 6.0L engine ages a new problem has started to appear more frequently - diesel fuel in the cooling system caused by a crack in one of the cylinder heads. This crack appears in an internal cooling system passage in one of the cylinder heads adjacent to an injector bore. Because fuel pressure is greater than cooling system pressure, diesel fuel migrates into the cooling system.
The traditional solution to this problem is, of course, to replace the cylinder head. We have teamed with an innovative local company to bring you a highly effective yet comparatively inexpensive solution to this problem which involves replacing the factory fuel injector sleeve with an extended sleeve which completely covers the cracked area and is cemented and sealed by a retaining compound. Because the replacement injector sleeve reduces the effective diameter of the injector bore, it is necessary to replace the lower injector body with a redesigned part that will fit into the new injector sleeve. The book time to replace a single 6.0L injector is 1.6 hours. Once the leaking injector bore is identified, it should require less than 1 additional hour to complete the repair.
No special skills are required. Unlike other methods of attempting to repair this problem, the results are not highly dependent on the skill of the installer. Anyone who is comfortable changing a 6.0L injector should be able to effectively complete this repair. We believe our repair method is superior to simply filling the crack with a sealing material, because the extended sleeve completely seals the cracked area so that even as the crack grows a leak should never reoccur. What does the kit include?
Each 6.0L Head Repair Kit includes an extended repair sleeve, a tube of Loctite sleeve retaining compound, a new lower injector body, and an injector seal kit. This listing also includes the 6.0L Injector Holding Fixture which is necessary for changing the lower injector body. What else do I need?
In order to remove the old injector sleeve, and install the new one, you will need a 6.0L injector sleeve remover / installer tool set. You will also need an injector holding fixture in order to replace the lower injector body (included in this listing). To locate a listing without the injector holding fixture.
A color hard-copy is included with your order and a PDF version is also available on our web-site. Made with pride in the USA. If a delay occurs that is longer than would normally be considered commercially acceptable, we will attempt to contact you. Please take a moment to read it.
Local auto parts stores will not pay your travel costs to return a part either. Applications We guarantee our parts to be as described by part number, picture, and verbiage. While we do our best, vehicle applications, however, simply cannot be guaranteed. In most cases, we do not generate application lists. It is the nature of the auto parts business that, in rare cases, a part will not be correct for a certain vehicle even though it "should" fit.This may occur because of errors on application lists, mid-year production changes, changes to the vehicle since it was built, the fact that a car was not built for the US market, etc. If a part does not fit your vehicle, this does not mean the part is not as described. Problems can be solved much more easily when civility is kept intact. The item "Diesel Fuel in your Coolant 6.0L Ford Powerstroke Cylinder Head Repair Kit" is in sale since Friday, February 8, 2019.
