    M939A1 NHC Turbo

    Now I was told by my injection pump man that had his own shop and worked on the Cummins in the military stock 250 rail pressure not to go over 200 psi.

    Engine quits suddenly -M37

    I do not know if that is the OP's problem but I add a small sheet of asbestos to my metal shield. Got it off an old house that had the asbestos shingles for siding.

    Seeking Advice on Replacing HH O-Rings in the Truck

    NY Tom got a pm from the op and you guessed it just needed to get the system fully primed. That is much better than having to remove the head to check assembly.

    Seeking Advice on Replacing HH O-Rings in the Truck

    a strange noise coming from an NHC250 water pump
