Cummins reassembly

Started putting the cummins together with a few of my buddies. Got the crank, cam, pistons and rods installed and torqued down in a few hours.

Cool More progress on the cummins

Hey guys,
more progress on the cummins in the last few days, got the injector lines re-installed valve covers painted ford blue, HX40 reclocked and reoriented, and i built myself a custom flange thing for my oil supply on the HX40. The original turbo on the cummins was an H1C, and for some odd reason the threads on the supply line were bigger than the threads on the HX40, so I had to weld a 3/8 fitting some steel plate. Today Im going to put the new adapter plate and flexplate on, and possibly crank it up today. We're getting closer and closer to having this thing done.

Any updates? I hope your project is going well. Ripped the 6.0 out of mine this past week. Waiting on the machine shop to get the engine finished and a few parts to ship to me. I'm pretty excited to put mine together.

Hey guys, I know its been a while, but Im getting so close! This video is about a year old but it goes into a little more detail of the project. The cummins is in the truck now. I had my injection pump rebuilt but, I did have a problem with it though. I went to fire it up and nothin... took it off and took it to a diesel shop to see what was up and it turns out that the people that rebuilt it forgot a part or two. (never going there again), so anyways im gonna put the pump back on tomorrow and see what happens. Hopefully she fires right up. Ill post more pictures soon. After almost 3 years of very slow work we are almost done.
