Welcome New Members

Hi everybody! I would like to welcome some new members to the Ky Chapter! They are as follows,

Draino69,
Seajr1978,
Classic Ford Lover.

A couple are new to FTE, so welcome to both FTE, and to the Ky Chapter. Seajr1978 just recently joined the Ky Chapter if I'm not mistaken, but has been an FTE member for a while. And, forgive me if I mess this up, but there may have been one or 2 that I didn't mention. If so, remind me here, or send me a PM. This has been a very busy month for me.

Welcome folks!!

Thanks for the welcome and glad to be here!! Look forward to getting to know Ford lovers in Kentucky

Unfortunately my '07 F350 6.0L PowerStroke is being towed to Lexington from Cincinnati on Saturday and I need a reference for a really good shop that knows 6.0's in Kentucky. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Yes I do. He's located in Bracken Co off the AA Hwy. Foster, Ky to be exact. What's the problem?

I appreciate the offers!

I was towing my 5th wheel up 275 and without warning, just lost power and started blowing white, blue, black smoke. Dealer is trying to tell me that #5 cylinder is dead and #4 has low compression, "which is usual for the one next to the dead cylinder to do." As soon as he said that, I knew something was up. They are quoting me $15K to replace the engine. I just can't believe I have melted pistons with only 63K miles on it.

Is it tuned? And did you do any mods like an EGR delete or head studs? I'm thinking head gasket. Wonder if they really did a compression test.

That's about 30 minutes from me. Travis's shop is about 20 miles down the AA Hwy (Route 9) from 275.
