Greg B.'s Story
Ibecame a big Cummins fan when Dodge introduced their truck line with that engine in 1989. I test drove a new one and (You'll want to shoot me!)bought a one ton Chebby instead. HA!I just did not like the Dodge truck much at the time.It handled poorly compared to the Chebby, and they were initially having teething problems with both the manual and automatic transmissions. The 454 Chebby gasser simply ran circles around it so that is the way I went. But, I loved that Cummins engine!I quickly put 335,000 miles on the Chebby and decided toswap a Cummins into it. I found a sweetrunning Cumminsout of a wrecked1997 Dodge and bought that engine.But, just as I was about to have the installation performed, I happened to stumble uponmy 1996 Dodge 2500 4X4 pickup in a farmer's yard and bought that truck on the spot.It was just too goodto pass up. So, Idecided to sell my other seperate Cummins engine and skip the Chebby swap...........at least for now!
I don't have to do much. I use Fleetguard air, oil, and fuel filters, exclusively and change the oil every five thosand miles. I use Southwestern Petroleum Co. CI+4 oil imported from Texas.
