    You don't need it as mentioned above several times. But you need the shroud at the radiator.

    2006 6.0 block trouble

    I made a short video of what removing and installing the piston pin bushings might look like. I am not a fan of hydraulic presses for this type of work. However, the bushings should be shrunk as much as possible, because the soft material on the outside of the bushing is easily worn away when...

    Rod bushing vid follows tomorrow. It was an odyssey until I got the other pistons (0.030" over, 0.010" destroked) for the engine with the EGR cooler damage. The customs made problems although everything was described perfectly and all papers were filled out correctly. Finally, after hours of...

    I made an interesting discovery today Jack. The piston pin bushings in the rods are also segmented on the original rods, you just see it very bad. If you press the bushings out of the rod, you can see the segmentation better on the outside. I'll make a video tomorrow of de- and installation of...

    I have also worked on many engines, I had not seen anything like this before either. This engine I had opened because of a catastrophic EGR cooler damage. The only consolation for the truck owner is that there would have been problems with the engine at some point anyway due to the one-sided...

    I am still waiting for the parts out of USA. It is always the same problem. The parts are quickly from the U.S. here in Germany at customs, customs takes an eternity for the processing. I wanted to go on vacation, but I have to wait for the delivery with the connecting rods and all the other...

    I go both ways. The bushings in the old rods are not segmented. I would prefer to install these. Apparently these are no longer available and only the segmented bushings are available. I have now ordered bushings AND rods to see which bushings are installed in the ordered rods. If it should be...

    Thanks. I already have the tooling ready for this job, if you want I can post some pictures to go with it. Obviously he uses the segmented bushings. My question to him would have been in which orientation he install the segmented position. But I will see when my part delivery arrives, I have...

    still no reply from Anthony ( Super Duty Service LLC ), that is a pity (n) Today the pistons (0.030" oversize and 0.010" destroked) finally arrived at my forwarder in NH and I was able to get the shipping started along with the connecting rods and all the odds and ends. The stuff should be here...

    I don't want to hammer them in at all, nor do I want to press them in, so I want to shrink the segmented bearings before inserting them. I think the loads from the piston pin are much higher than the cam bearings. Therefore I do not want to press in the segmented bearings .

    I think I will produce dry ice with a carbon dioxide fire exxher and try how far the piston pin bushings shrink with it.

    Will only need the tool for the 6.0 rods

    I had contacted Anthony via Facebook, obviously he currently has no homepage via which I could reach him. Unfortunately, he did not answer. I will build the tool to change the bushings. Liquid nitrogen is unfortunately very expensive and not easy to get. Does anyone have a link to Anthony's video?

    XPD canceled my order for the piston pin bearings because the phone number was not correct. On their order form for the billing address you can't enter a German phone number, so I entered the one from my forwarder in NH, the shipping address to my forwarder was correct. XPD makes no effort...
