    I think most of the overheat damage would be in the heads.. It needs to be dis- assembled and checked. tmm

    I'd agree on checking out the heads really good. Pretty sure overheating was the reason one of my heads lost a valve seat. I bought it that way and tried cleaning it up, but ended up just replacing the head later because I couldn't clean up the dings from the chewed up metal. Refurb heads aren't bad though, found them online for something like $300 each with a core.

    It's common for the fan blades to come apart on them. Causing overheating.

    Yeah, there's various reasons for overheating. The fan modules go bad and the fan motors also. Bottom line is it's VERY common to drop a valve seat after overheating. I have a 5.7 core simply because I got it cheap. I threw the heads away. It destroyed one piston, but the cylinder wall was barely touched, would possibly clean up with just a hone.

    If your bosses engine had overheated, just do the usual machine shop checks of the block, but personally, I wouldn't trust those heads. I'm not sure what steps a machine shop can take to make sure the seats don't come out later. Anybody know?
