I don't know if the g56 needs extra lube, but the nv5600 sure does. The TDR mag is right.

After personally talking to the Cummins engineer in charge of the 5.9 engines, about lift pump failures, I'm convinced he's real happy that Dodge is taking the wrap for Cummin's screwup. Cummins...

I've tried every way I could think of to bleed the clutch hydralics "on the truck". Nothing ever worked. Taking the whole assembly out and bleeding it on the bench works much better. I've done...

The most bang for the buck I've seen for the 24v over the last 7 years is a used EZ. They sell around here all the time for $200. Even at $250 it's a heck of a deal.

IMO, it is Cummins' decision to power the lift pump straight off the ECM and mounting it on the engine block, that are the biggest reasons for lift pump and VP44 failures. These cause rapid fuel...
