I do the same thing! I keep the binder in my truck for long trips, just in case I don't get Internet service.

Gary, I didn't go through all of the PDF's yet, but is there any section that talks about measuring block flatness, or how to prep the block for headgaskets?

Also, is the detailed instructions on checking the heads for flatness in there? I've always heard it's not a good way to do it, but never heard the actual specs or procedure.

Thanks! Mike

For checking head flatness Ford says to use a straight edge and if the heads are within .004 of being flat there good to put back on but I highly advise against this. this is why the 6.0 blows head gaskets. They also say .004 is OK on block flatness too. for prepping the block Ford says to ONLY use a plastic scraper and there ford metal surface prep part number ZC -A-31.

the only part of this i would say is a good idea to do is use the plastic scraper and there metal surface prep to remove the old gasket residue.

If there is anything else you wanna know just let me know MDUB. this info came straight from my uncle who is a head mechanic and shop manager at a local ford dealer.
