Machine shop did not follow manufacturers specs

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

Had this machine shop perform a simple injector sleeve inspection for cracks in the heads. Asked the owner to not resurface heads he did not listen and did it anyway these heads are off a 2000 ford 7.3.

These heads are not to be resurfaced as per fords specs idk where he got his specs from long story short he did it anyway after 3 months of chasing my tail located the issue being the milling done to the heads threw everything out of alignment caused many issues somehow I got it to run.

Had the same issue with fuel mixing with coolant. Ended up haveing to buy a junk yard engine and rebuild it with new heads during my inspection of the heads found he didnt even lap the valves do not use this shop ever
