How to rebuild a cummins

Postby PJ 3 » Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:41 pm

Thanks to the many people who helped me on this site and cummins forum, I am finally beginning to see the end results after 1 1/2 years of working on my truck . All I have left to do is install my cab lights and get my new bumpers on and she's ready to roll :D
Just like the day I bought it back in August of 92

Great job on the truck. Someday mine will be done and look as nice as that.

Last years dyno day was in October. There was a 4 door crew cab conversion there from St Steven area last year. How far are you from the border at Calais??

My quickest way is cross country through the bush and hit the 95 in Houlton. I'm about 3.5 hours from St Stephen
