Dodge Truck Cummins Block Crack
If your Dodge truck's Cummins engine block has suffered a crack, it's important that you get to the root of the problem before attacking it. The technicians of LOCK-N-STITCH Inc., a trusted vendor of Cummins Diesel as well as Mack Trucks, Caterpillar, and others, have put their extensive experience into finding a solution. If your Cummins engine block dates between 1999 and 2001, with the number 53 cast on the driver's side, you could be facing a crack on the passenger side of the block.
The site of crack is the thinnest part of the block on that side, creating a weak area, which--in part--leads to the crack. Drivers who don't fully warm up the engine before driving away run a high risk of thermal expansion, causing a crack. These cast iron cracks cannot be welded in-frame with any process without causing more cracks and more leaks.
With 30 years of experience in developing patented solutions to tough cast-metal repair issues, the experts of LOCK-N-STITCH Inc. knew they had to get to the heart of the Cummins crack problem before recommending a solution. Unlike other types of cracks, which result from heavy loads or higher horsepower engines, the number 53 block issue has a different cause, calling for an alternate solution. The answer from LNS involves their quality metal stitching, coupled with a new reinforcing bracket for additional support.
LOCK-N-STITCH Inc. offers products, kits, as well as their own technicians to fix the problem on Dodge trucks with the Cummins block crack. You can fix it yourself with the LNS kit solution, or have the experts at LOCK-N-STITCH Inc. fix it for you. To learn more, call LNS at 800-736-8261 or 209-632-2345, or email email@example.com.
