Head work costs $750- $800
The machine shop was $250. They welded the Head where the water created a channel, cleaned everything up. Deck
the head to make sure it was flat. Ground the values and reset them, and replaced the injectors sleeves.
They also put Heli coils in the exhaust manifold where the thermostat housing bolds it. This was worth the $50, because about 1/3 of the threads were left.
Parts cost about $500 and included.
Cam seal $45 was leaking
Head gasket $120
Injector sleeves $100
Exhaust gasket $45
Other gaskets and seals
Other parts, lube, rags, washers, bolts, jb weld for the channel on the block $60
$60 (three shipments)
Engine starts with lots of smoke, but I am dealing with water leaks
between the water pump and thermostat housing. So it has only run for a couple minutes. I had to call it a day and will fix the water leak in a few days.
I don't know if there is a trick, but lining up the pipe from the raw water pump
is difficult without creating leaks
... I did it before when I rebuilt the water pump.
