Sounds about right. How many miles on your truck, may want to have the heads and valves inspected while it is apart.

At that mileage the valves should be OK still, wouldn't hurt to have them checked since you'll have the heads off anyway.
What is causing you to think the head gaskets are gone?

head gaskets

Initially there was a sudden spike in temperature with no heat inside the car., I replaced the thermostat , still there was a intermittant gurgling bubbling sound from the reservoir tank. I had the coolant tested for carbon monoxide contamination and it showed there was gas in the coolant.

Too Bad,
Make sure you do both sides, and with that mileage on it why don't you flush out the engine afterwards, get alot of the sludge out, hell I would pull the pan afterwards and inspect the pick up tube for blockage, it is common.

DOes anyone know the cost of replacing head gasket on 96 disco, non-dealer.
the book says 10-12hrs time, is this correct?
*Dealer cost info only*
Not being savvy in this area, I just know that I had a leak at the head gasket on my 97 Disco. On my invoice (from dealer) it said "Leak at cyl head gasket. Replace cyl head gasket and associated parts replace all cooling system hoses and t/stat in conjuction with gasket repair." Listed was about 7 1/2 hours for all of this. Labor $1,044, and parts $714.

Oh, looks like the head gasket labor part was $852.00 plus $400 parts.. Just in case the info helps! Michele :confused
