Talking 6.0 Powerstroke Fun

We are still trying to figure out what happened. But for some reason this 6.0 spun 2 rod bearings, broke a rod in two pieces, and spit a piston through the block. Seriously, not the rod, but the WHOLE piston through the side of the block. I can't get a good picture of the hole because the motor mount is in the way. :jump:

JB Weld.

You've got 7 others pistons in there, what's the issue? Unplug that injector, JB the block and just keep running it!

Arent the 7.3 powerstrokes alot more reliable? That sucks anyways. I bet those engines arent cheap.

I heard the 6.0 was a joke compared to the 7.3.

the 7.3 is a rock solid engine for the most part.

This will cost the customer 10k for the engine, 3k for the lost core, and 12 hours at 95 an hour to install it.

So yes, it is cheaper to trash the truck and buy another. :(

Jesus. How many miles on the truck? I've never had the joyous experience of a rod vacating my personal engine before, but my family had a hemi 5.7 **** some conrods out the oil pan on their magnum after it got hydrolocked in a flood. That's a realllll bitch.

What's the large, helix type thing on the upper left of that block??

if the 6.0 is anything like the 7.3, thats where the fuel/water separator goes. I got out of the ford tech biz just as the 6.0 was introduced.

105,000 miles.

and the helical thing is what the oil filter sits on. The housing that holds it and the fuel filter is off.

This has to be one of the funniest lines in the last month. Good job, man, well played.
