Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a great deal because two different diesel engines are covered in the same book by Bob McDonald. Bob, a 20 year diesel specialist, also does gas engines and anything that comes through his doors. Covering Ford/Navistar 7.3L and 6.0L diesel engines, this is the book we have been waiting for to clear up the problems about these two engines. If this book saves you just once from making a mistake while working on eitherof these engines, what is it worth to you? If you do not rebuild these diesels, buy it for a person who does or someone who is just learning. They will be in your debt. Great job, Bob" -reviewed by Mike Caruso, engine professional, October 2012 (Mike Caruso engine professional 2012-10-24)

book listed in "16 Must-Have Products" by Diesel World magazine, April 2013 issue (Diesel World magazine 2013-02-28)

"This book is full of tips from a seasoned mechanic. While it will never substitute for a factory service manual, this book is a great resource. The large full-color photos would even make this a great tool for service writers, helping them to explain a rebuild to customers who don't want to take on the task themselves. Ford fanatics will, of course, have to have one. It's worth adding to your truck manual selection, for the tech tips alone." -Trent Riddle, Diesel World, May 2013 (Trent Riddle Diesel World magazine 2013-03-13)

From the Back Cover

Diesel-powered trucks have never been more popular, and Ford’s Power Stroke family of Diesel engines have been a mainstay of the marketplace since introduced in 1994. While these engines are well known for their durability and longevity, they still require a rebuild at some point. How to best diagnose, repair, and rebuild these engines has been somewhat of a mystery for those without access to the factory manuals—until now. This book covers the vast majority of Power Stroke Diesel engines on the road, and includes the story of their design. Each major system used within the Power Stroke engines is described and discussed in detail, with full-color photos of every critical component. A complete step-by-step engine rebuild of both the 7.3L and 6.0L engines is also included. Also included are a wide range of engine building tips, charts, graphs, and information-packed sidebars to share even more information. Detailed graphics show the engine’s various system designs.

I finished my truck and it runs great.

There should be a section in the books which describes what needs to be done for this engine during a rebuild.
Amazon Customer
The book is filled with very sharp, clear color pictures of the interior of the engine.

This is a great book for all of us who do repair work on the Powerstroke engine. The book is filled with very sharp, clear color pictures of the interior of the engine. After I went through this book, I had a much clearer understanding of how the engine is manufactured, and insight into what is necessary to disassemble and reassemble the engine for repairs. This book will help tie together someone else's description of what is necessary to do a particular job, and I would not be without it. I would say this is a must have book for all of us who need to work on our engines and do not have the luxury of professional training. The book will probably save you a lot of unnecessary troubleshooting and work with the insight that you will get from it.

I bought this book hoping to be ablr to get enough information rebuilding heads and installing up grades to my 6.0 powerstroke diesel. I have wrenched on gasoline powered engines here and there but never tried a diesel this was my first time with such a big job and the book helped me tremendously. I have the Haynes and Chilton books but this book was alot more informative than either of the other two. It gives you step by step procedures with color pictures that really help. I finished my truck and it runs great. For a beginner (with some knowledge of wrenching) to a seasoned pro this book should have something to offer.

Unfortunately, this book was a disappointment. It's hard to imagine what audience would really find this book useful. It gives only brief descriptions of steps so would be little use to a novice who wants to attempt a rebuild. On the other hand, the absence of any detail makes it almost useless to someone like me who has rebuilt multiple engines but wants to know some special tricks or things to look out for on this specific engine. I think the best use would be as a coffee table book to browse the beautiful pictures to get the basic idea of how someone else would rebuild your engine. Beyond the overall lack of detail, my major complaints are:
- There are no torques specs anywhere. Tolerance tables would also be nice but torque specs are a requirement for a rebuilding book.
- The performance section surveys just basic bolt-on stuff like air intake, exhaust, gauges, and tuning. A much more relevant discussion for a rebuilder is what engine modifications or replacements are recommended. Things like EBV delete, EGR delete, different injectors, fuel and oil crossovers, up-pipe leaks, and turbo options.
- The 6.0 engine has known reliability problems but can be made right with proper modifications. There should be a section in the books which describes what needs to be done for this engine during a rebuild.
- The product placements get old. One gets plugs for everything from gaskets and bolts to paint. Assuming the author got endorsement money, the book should have been nearly free.
That all said, I've never seen a rebuild book with so many quality pictures and the author does a good job of separating the 7.3 and 6.0 engines to remove any confusion. However, 2 chapters of the Haynes Ford Superduty Pickup repair manual has more information for a Powerstroke engine rebuild than this entire book.

This was a very helpful book. I did not do a full overhaul on my engine as I replaced with a remanufactured engine but lots of tips on removal and installation.

This book is a fantastic tool for rebuilding the Ford powerstroke. The text is written in plain language that everyone can understand and there are loads of great photos to help along the way. It's exactly what I was looking for.

This book does not give enough detail as to where and what bolts to remove. I am a average shade tree mechanic.

The book has lots of good info and great pictures. However, it completely lacks torque specs and clearances such as crank end play. The book is useless for actually rebuilding an engine
