Diesel Engine Repair Kits
New Engine Kits for Selected Cummins ISX Engine Applications Available
IPD, a leading aftermarket provider of engine components for heavy-duty diesel and natural gas powered engines, announces the launch of several new kits for selected Cummins® ISX engine applications. These kits feature a new “closed skirt” design EGR piston, which replaces two previous EGR piston designs.
This new EGR piston is available in a piston kit, cylinder kit, and in-frame kit (part numbers shown below). Features include a reduced diameter top land that helps to reduce oil consumption, and also minimizes liner polishing due to carbon packing. This top land specification allows any carbon that forms to flake off instead of forming a bridge between the piston and liner. It is important to note that open and closed skirt design pistons must never be combined together within an engine.
