Your timing is off and needs to be reset by static timing. Call cummins to have this done. It is a common issue

Hi, what is your engine serial number and the actual oil pressure you are getting? Inspect the filter internally and let me know if any metal/debris is found.

Hi Damon, Did you get this resolved? Are there any traces of metal/debris in your oil filter if you cut it open for sampling?
