No I guess not.THere is a solenoid UPGRADE that is supposed to stop the water from gravity pushing the water into the cylinders I did not have it and did not even now that this was a possibility
Now a forty dollar part is going to cost me thousands I am so pissed I can t think about anything else but that People are telling me that it would be almost cheaper to replace the engine than it s going to be to have somone replace the rings

that realy is not to much of a complicated job are you good with a wrench?
If you are going to spend that kind of money for a new motor I hate to sugjest it but cummins is a good implant.

Dude...I'm sorry about your truck. From the sound of it...it looks like your not going to be able to get Snow to even pay for a little bit of it....(though I would try.) If I was in AZ I would 150% come and help you with the rebuild/fix.

Ya I m pretty bummin But I love my truck so I will what I have to get her fixed
I ve done little things myself like the ats housing and the new inner coolerand the waste gate but I think this over my head I ve never cracked into a motor with more than one cylinder
Anyone know where to get a rebuild kit ?? I d like to upgrade whatever I can within reason price wise I m thinking $1500-$2000
As far as the cummings swap the motor is a decent price but I m thinking its all the other stuff that needs to be swaped would just nickle and dime me to death but thanks for the offer
