I'm searching for a Cummins B Series ISB 5.9l engine owners manual.
Is there an online resource or other elec. format that I can obtain?

Hello, my name is Joe

Could you please provide your engine serial number, or let me know if it is an electronic ISB or a mechanical injection B series.

Thank you

Hi Joe!
I found three different plates / stickers on the engine...all near the radiator.
VALEO P/N(###) ###-####MADE IN USA 97072201VAB1040028 VALEO P/N(###) ###-####MADE IN USA 97080401VAB1003435 VALEO P/N(###) ###-####MADE IN USA 97080401I don't know if it's elec. or mech. injection - it's a 1998 FedEx Stepvan so maybe it's mechanical?
I hope this helps.

Thanks for the update,

None of those numbers are a valid serial number.

Can you see the top of the valve cover? does it say anything on the valve cover, like 24 valve?

1998 could be either , and the engines are very different.

Thanks Joe.
I'll try to find the serial number and respond tomorrow.

Hi Joe,
The only number I could locate near the valve covers was 10F7.
I'm going to attach two photos that will hopefully help provide the necessary info.

Ok, thanks for the photos.

Your engine is a mechanical B series engine.

There is a paper service manual available, as well as a a manual on CD ROM.

They are available from Cummins.

Please see the attatched images for the item numbers and ordering contact information.

Thank you,
