Hello fellow ford lovers, I'm new here so I hope to do this right. I have just purchased a 2004 f550 6.0 with a 37' elliot lift. It has 148000 miles on the truck and it's the second motor in it. This last motor quite when they overheated it and it just stopped running. The dip stick smells like burnt oil. I had 2 mechanics look at it and have 2 very different opinions. One says pull the motor, fix whats broken and install the upgrade bullit prof kit. The other says, because of the application (boom runs off the PTO) Pull the 6.0 and install a 7.3. What would you do if it were yours.
Thanks for ypur help, 2004 f550

Welcome! From Redding CA!

I would go with mechanic number one, fix whats broke and bulletproof it.
