Captain JB, I recently purchased 40ft BlueWater trawler with the 466 cu in and have an issue with the exhaust manifold. The down stream elbow was badly corroded and when it was removed along with the exhaust header three of the exhaust ports had a large build up of oily carbon. I am thinking that this would be caused by worn bore and rings, and the exhaust valve and head ports are probably in the same condition.
Do you know if any company supplies reconditioned heads, or where I could buy the parts to do the job myself.
Also do you know where I could find a shop service manual. There are owner manuals available but I doubt they would go into the detail needed for a head rebuild.

I appreciate any advice you can give Josh. I have lots of experience with gas engines but this is my first diesel.
