Cummins ISX head gasket problem
Has anybody experienced a blown head gasket on a Cummins ISX engine, only to find that some of the cyl. liners had sunk in the block?

Re: Cummins ISX head gasket problem
I lost a head gasket on mine but there was no sunken cylinder liners. Had Cummins Rocky Mountain do the work and the jackasses cracked the head by over torquing bolts. Took the truck in back in March to have an overhead done and to chase a minor oil leak. When Rush Truck Center in Escondido, CA popped the valve cover off they found cracks at the bolts on the inside of the head.
Of course Cummins wouldn't stand behind their F'up and it cost me just shy of $10,000 to put a new head on my truck. I will not do business with Cummins Rocky Mountain in SLC, UT ever again.Yankin' a tank and running in the Fayetteville Shale Gas Patch
