The heads were not done right to start with, maybe not checked for flatness. Just because it was studded does not mean it will not break again.

That's what I was thinking but I didn't want to question the other shops work. They are very respected.

My 6.0 was bone stock and had 4 head gaskets replaced by the time I sold it.
I didn't drive it hard and it was a real puzzler. It never cost me anything as warranty took care of it but I didn't want it out of warranty.
That said, I am thinking about buying another 6.0 for a project.
Are the last years any better than the first?

I guess you've never met Jose, the gardener. He's known as the Mario Andretti of Mazatlan. He co-drove in the 1954 Carrera Panamerica and blew the heads off his Cadillac.

Iv'e read somewhere that pushing over 20psi at lower than normal operating temps can be the killer even with studs ( witch I don't have yet) so if I am towing I usually warm up a few more minutes just to be sure. I'll blow off anything on the trip later. Like XB70 was saying who knows how the lawn care guys drove it in the first 15 min.

cheezit,

In order for this truck to be overloaded by a gardener he would have to been carrying 2000 lawnmowers and 200 employees man...... and even then I don't think so.

How overloaded does it need to be for Jose to start it, floor it to the next job two blocks away, park it for 45 minutes and repeat 10 times per day?

What if they're Indian gardeners?
