Missed the GTG but.

My weekends have been taken up with if you can believe it helping a pal rebuild a 6.5 turbo diesel, just a tiny bit different than a Gasser engine.

It had a valve that had pieces break off that fell into the combustion chamber and inbed into the top of the piston.

The heads were cracked a bit so buddy decided he wanted to do all the cylinder rings and get new heads, so that's what we're doing.

Interesting though he priced out a bare head from a GM dealership $2,600.00 each.

Went to the local engine machine shop got new head with new exhaust valves and all new guides and pre chambers all machining and installation so a completely dressed head for $503.00.

Does anyone wonder why the dealerships have such a bad name?


Back at er today.

Rick.
