For Cumminsdr only. ESN 79579194 camshaft...
For Cumminsdr only.
ESN 79579194 camshaft spin 3 bearings for lack of oil coming to head, we took camshaft and bearings and rockers apart, and crank engine to find out there is no oil coming from the 2 orifice holes on each end of head,,, took oil pan down and replaced oil pump,replaced rod & main bearings even tho bearings were in pretty good shape no signs of metal, also rip apart oil filter no metal found, put everything back together still has no oil coming up to head, oil pressure gauge reads 65 psi at idle with engine cold, but no oil coming thru head, any ideas why is the rifle blocked only to come up to head? We haven't touch oil cooler yet wondering if could be a blokeage there Thanks

Lol no problem
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Just to inform you this engine doesn't have the outside feed line it's all inside the head thru the main rifle from block
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
We blow the main rifle from different ports around the engine and piece of old clothe came out from one of the plug holes, weird but all pressure is back up to the head
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 6 months ago
Thank you

Sounds like a Techs shop rag went into the engine.
