Looking for an experienced Ford diesel shop

Post by Blindfaith » Fri Nov 21, 2014 10:06 am

My borrowed time has run out. The head gaskets on my 2007 6.0 PSD are pooched. Trying to find a shop who is willing to lift the cab and pull the heads is proving difficult. Any one have any suggestions for a shop who is willing to do the work, has done the work before and can do it for under the what the dealer charges? I am in Fairfax, but will travel just about anywhere to get the job done right.

What about the 4x4 center?

I had brakes done there on my F250; happy with work.

Gillilan Brothers in Cambridge on 104. They've done work on our Ambulances. Just replaced the Trubo on our F250.

there was a good 10 second pause when i asked if they could do it....doesn't instill confidence.

And it looks like dealership, (G Stone is at the top of the list) got a few "we could give it a try" but most shops wont even call me back.
