Default Who is responsible when ....

Took my 2013 F350 in to replace a cracked cylinder head. Had all the symptoms and I knew that's what was wrong. Mechanic agreed. We decided to replace both heads .. new ones, not rebuilds. After completing the repair the shop drove the truck around for two days to make sure all was good. On day 2 during their test drive engine throws a piston rod punching a hole in the block. Who is responsible for the cost of new block and labor to fix it?

Depends what caused the failure. How were you so sure it had a cracked head to begin with? Not a common issue by any means...

Coolant was getting into the exhaust. I could smell it. White exhaust smoke at startup that would clear after a minute or two. Check engine code "cylinder 7 balancing issue. Mechanic said that the engine ran well right until it threw the rod

Is there something special about number 7?

Sounds like poor diagnosis to me.

Agreed.
Doesn't mention if the truck was on a diet, but a leaking egr cooler could have been the cause of both problems.
