I just discovered that if you search the tsb number, the actual tsb comes up. For example I searched #06-01-90a and this site came up, very informative...Mark

How did you perform the search .. On the WEB, or on Diesel Truck Resource ?.

I tried DTR, didn't work so good.

It looks like a very valuable tool to be able to pull up specific info on a TSB.

THANKS for this link, and info. Very nice

Thanks Bob, I found the list of tsbs on a google search, but from Mexico. I get results here that are different than those up there, their restrictions are different I guess. Then I searched the tsb number down here to get the actual tsb. Did the tsb not come up when you searched the number up there? If not, I'll go ahead and search all the relevant first gen tsbs and link them up, shouldn't take too long......Mark

At some point Cummins issued a TSB to cover fixing the Killer Dowel Pin: TSB03003

I could not locate it on the above-referenced Geno's list, but I've attached it here as a .pdf file. Our First Gen engines have the "bossed gear housing."
