I have a 1995 dodge...
I have a 1995 dodge ram 3500 12v cummins in our shop, We are trying to remove the camshaft, to repair an oil leak on the front cover and also install a new kdp, The problem is, we cannot get the camshaft out. I have done many of these on the 24 valve, but never a 12 valve, but they should be the same concept, We put wooden dowels to hold up the tappets, and were sure theyre all the way it, The cam will come out a few inches and then just stop.. Its very weird, Any Ideas.

I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Did you remove the Fuel Pump? The fuel pump rides on a cam lobe and if you didn't remove the fuel lift pump, the Camshaft WILL NOT come out....

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
