    Cummins Database

    Hi Everyone,

    This database is for Cummins engine information: part numbers, interchange part numbers, specifications, detailed procedures, etc. Please do not post questions or issues specific to your boat. It's OK to post feedback on data that should be included here. Keep in mind, that once someone posts the data, your feedback post may be deleted to keep the database clean. Thanks in advance.

    Those of you with Cummins engines can set up a free account at Cummins Quick Serve. You will need the engine serial numbers to do it. Quick Serve provides access to parts catalogs, specs, etc: https://qsol.cummins.com/info/index.html.

      On most of our boats it is hard to access the fuel filter on the port engine and the oil filter on the starboard engine. To simplify servicing the filters can be relocated toward the center line of the boat. Cummins makes the parts necessary to relocate both filters, but many Cummins parts providers do not know what to look for. Seaboard Marine (sbmar.com) is familiar with filter relocation and can provide kits with all the parts and hoses needed.

      Here is a photo of the Oil filter relocation kit installed on a 4BTA engine. The 6BTA installation is the same:

        All Cummins 6-series marine engines have a one zinc in the heat exchanger. Raw water after-cooled engines have two zincs in the aftercooler.

        Zinc model number: E2

        Zinc size: 1/2" NPT thread, 5/8" pencil zinc

              Oil Filter for Cummins B https://www.cumminsfiltration.com/si...s/MB9-02-1.pdf

              The LF 3894 is an upgrade to cheaper cellulose or glass fibre filters under a proprietary name StrataPore, which is a finer, lower micron filter.
