220 Cummins

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm about to buy a truck with a 220 Cummins in it. Anything bad to look for as I'll be making a 700 mile trip back with it. Also any info appreciated. Thanks in advance, Kevin :SMOKIE-LFT:

If it hasn't beeen run in awhile crack the pan drain plug 3-4 threads and check for water in the pan. a little from condensation is OK. Otherwise normal O/P is over 20 idle and 50+ at govened speed at operating tempature. A little water-oil seapage between head and block is fairly common. Be sure to carry at least 1 spare fuel filter and a quart of ATF or other thin oil to fillit with. The old 220s were pretty bullit proof.

Thanks for the reply as i'll probably be leaving this afternoon. Should be a fun trip back down through the Ozarks. Thanks again, Kevin :SMOKIE-LFT:
