do them both, you will be pretty much there anyway. You could take the fenders off and the front clip if you felt like it?

I don't think I would though.

Iím hoping to java some time this weekend to tear into it. Both heads will come off and if the diesel gods arenít too mad at me itíll be just the gaskets. Iíll try to remember to take pictures.

I hope your right and that's all it is, but I don't it's very common for the head gaskets to just fail on the 6.7.

Head gasket issues are extremely uncommon on 6.7s. But, there have been cases of bad cylinder heads.

Finally got that head off. Reckon I'll get the other one off and take them down to have them looked at. Mahle kit was da#n near impossible to find but the internet is a wonderful thing. #1 was wet, the other 3 looked good.

Other bank looked good. Heads are at the machine shop getting pressure tested and inspected. Project took a lot longer than Iíd hoped, but life happens. Heads should be ready by the time I get home in 3 weeks and with any luck itíll be running this time next month.
