Hand Clutch is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just clicked to join.... lookin' for local knowledge!

Hi all,

I just signed up for the chapter and hope to enjoy the ranks. I occupy space in Glen Rock, York County and own two Ford F-350's, one of which just followed me home this past weekend.

Old dependable is a 1989 F-350 SRW 4x4 with the ever famous 7.3 IDI. It's a beast, there's pics in an old post on the 7.3 pre-powerstroke page.

The "new" ride is a 2004 F-350 SRW 4x4 with the ever debated 6.0 PSD and a 6spd grinder.

Being I'm new to the PSD world and the 6.0 has an interesting reputation, I'm hoping to call on the chapter for some local help. Looking for a trusted and reputable diesel tech in the greater York / Hanover / Glen Rock area that's good with the 6.0 . I have a short warranty on the truck and need someone who knows the game to give it a thorough physical exam (including the gloved hand) to catch anything major before the magic warranty expires. There are a ton of local shops and I'm looking for input on who's who in the 6.0 world!

Any input both positive and negative is greatly appreciated.... feel free to drop me a PM if you'd like to share bad experiences, may help keep trouble off the board. I'm gonna post this up in the 6.0 PSD thread too.....

Thanks and stay safe!

Mark T. - Glen Rock, PA

Hey and welcome Hand clutch. I'm not that far from you. Mine is a 7.3 but I know head stud on the 6.0's go out. May want to replace them. There is a get together next month at Bill Bateman's In Hanover a good chance to meet some members.

Look up Paul Freda in the chapters member list and shoot him a PM or e-mail, he's the 6.0 guy for Ford.
