    I know I had a couple bent push tubes, as cummins calls them, it took them about an hour to fix that, so I wouldn't go as far as to call it blown. I thought you meant you put twin setups on it. Good Luck.

    I can only recommend a couple of great sites.

    www.tdr1.com Discussion forums are free.

    www.nwbombers.com located out west

    www.dieseltruckresource.com a lot of info about diesels

    these sites have helped me out with my diesel motor to no end. The people know their stuff and are willing to help anyone anywhere if possible. They may be able to help you find a different motor.

    as far as the oil pump it is run off of the cam timing gear and we had a 97 12v that went sour on us well actually bout 5 miles after no oil psi we was able to get off the road and had it towed, put new pump on and still going now at 170,000 i have a 02' with twin turbo's ats 2pc manifold straight 5" exhaust, altered Bosch fuel pump, bigger intercooler diesel dynamics injectors, poweredge module, second lift pump, etc. as well as southbend clutch on my third one supposed to hold 600+hp :gunsfiring: although never been dyno'ed, truck runs good and i have 21,000 miles on it and never an engine prob.
