Cummins tends to be very tight with its proprietary rights and it may be hard to get anything for those engines other than from Cummins. We have a couple of JD tractors with the 855 Cummins and we can't get engine parts form JD - we have to go to a Cummins supplier.

I just noticed that each line in my post starts with Cummins (at least on my monitor). That pretty much says it all - you have to start with Cummins.

I shall try my best to help you out.Its amusing that both Cummins and Caterpillar have adapted the same game.to make sure customer runs arround for parts for older models if at all if they supply the parts they would be charging the price of new engine for parts! this is my experience.

All Cummins have a number on the tag called a (CPL) With that number you can go to a independant injector pump shop and they can tell all you need to know.

The cummins works on charge pressure to the injectors.

Hi Fliptop427,

In the real world YES..but in Kenya the company has always bought on tender, so no person has or still is willing to help them...They have been doing their own pumps and injectors for a while..how long I have no idea.They lack even the basics because no relationship was developed between them and suppliers...so they sit I said I would try to assist.When I looked at the manner in which they repair..well I understand why the fuel usage is so high.I even looked at cummins web site to see if the engine was there but it is not, now a real question of how to assist.I still need to get the corect details of the injectors and the pumps then ask again.

many thanks

Further youwill not find the engine deatils because the perticular engine you are mentioneing for loco application is custom built you need to contact cummins with engine cerial Number for any help.As an ex CAT Application engineer i am telling you this all industrial application engines are custom built that includes Loco engines also Secondely Cummins are bound to provide service support whatever the mode of buying at any part of the world you can contact Cummins columbus and ask for help if your dealer is not helping you.

I agree with CRM that Cummins dealerships are duty bound to supply service. Even though they didn't sell the engines. If the engines we supplied by the Locomotive supplier then they are OEM sales and the local dealer should not complain. If they don't supply service, I can raise this up to VP level in Cummins USA. I'm dealing with them now on a huge global project at senior levels. I'm an Ex-Cat salesman at a dealership and sold out of my territory 95% of the time (CRM, if you were a Cat factory guy, forgive me [you probably know me then], and if you were a dealer Application Engineer, then you know what I mean that engines go in to other territories and the local dealer is responsible for warranty). There are plenty of USA "shops" that service the old NT855 and set the injection pumps and refurbish the injectors. I can probably get these settings, but for the pump, you will need a 'fuel bench' to test and set the injection pump.

On the pump itself it will be stamped with a CPL number. That number corresponds to the settings that fuel pump has been calibrated to. Any diesel fuel injection workshop offering Cummins PT fuel pump repair can assist you with information.
