I live near Milford and in need of a good mechanic or shop to repair broken exhaust manifold studs. I have a 2000 F350 V10, 155,000 miles. I called the local ford dealer and they ballpark about $1000.00 just to remove all the studs. Any help would be great. Thanks.
Right now the truck is just sitting. I have called a few shops and they either dont call back or want alot for the repair. I have a few people spreading the word what I am looking to get done. I dont drive the truck but a few times a month anymore so I can afford to let it sit. But it would be nice to get it fixed, then I can tackle the brakes next.
Do you need the studs that hold the manifold to the head or the manifold to the crossover? or both? One side or both? I can tell first hand I have been wrenching professional for over 30 years and that is one of the worst jobs I have done! I have seen your local Ford dealer quote 3K range to do a 5.4.
The parts add up fast and are $$$
