Anyone got a rough idea what it would cost to do the headgaskets on a 7.3?

Its a 95.

Its a dually one ton , anyone know what the rear ends would be.

Maybe i should just part the truck out?

I guess that depends on how the rest of the truck looks how much you paid for it.what you think you can get for it or how useful it would be to you fixed etc to do head gaskets in a shop you probably would be around 1500$ + do it yourself well depends how cheap you can find all the parts. I know just the valve cover gaskets are over a hundred bucks a side

Cummins swaps are sweet but after buying a cummins getting the drop in kit your looking at like 4 grand ! ...I thought about doing it to my truck but my motor just won't give up the ghost lol plus now I have a spare diesel motor in my driveway lol

Im not in love with the truck Im sick of it ............
I got a guy that wants the deck for 500 bucks.
Starter , alternator , rear ends , turbo and a few sensors should bring a few bucks?
HPOP pump and rad are also expensive items.

Then id still have some body parts someone might want.

Hell if I know.............
