2003-2005 Ford Powerstroke 6.0 Cylinder Head Saver Shim Kit
If you have a 6.0 Powerstroke that has a head gasket problem and found out your heads need surfaced beyond the .008” allowable specification, you do not have to get new heads. By using our Black Diamond Diesel Solutions Cylinder head saver kit, you can surface your virgin head up to .028” and not have any sort of piston to valve interference. There is absolutely no reason to throw away an otherwise good head.
The cylinder head shim goes directly on a cleaned deck surface with the supplied high temp sealant. This not only gives the head gasket a perfect surface finish to bond to, put also levels out an imperfections in the engine block surface.
We have tested these shims in several trucks over the past two years with zero failures. When installed properly they are 100% reliable. Also, you can install just one shim on one side with no adverse effects. You do not have to do both sides if the other head does not need extreme surfacing.
What you get in this kit:
1 – 18MM Cylinder Head Shim
1 – 18MM Cylinder Head Gasket
1 – High Temp Shim to Block Sealant
