Midland, MI (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Highway and Heavy Parts (HHP) is pleased to announce the availability of new ISX engine overhaul rebuild kit options for Cummins engine applications. This particular rebuild kit features all of the latest parts and tools that you need to help you extend the operational life of your ISX engine.
Replacing the N14 engine model in 1998, the Cummins ISX engine has been used in a wide range of highway trucking applications for over 15 years. It has undergone a number of changes since its release, the most prominent of which was a switch from a two-piece piston to a one-piece design. This one-piece design, which features a narrow window, is now available in rebuild kits from HHP.
For maximum strength and durability, these new pistons are manufactured from forged steel and incorporate unique welded single-piece oil cooling gallery plates for increased life expectancy. Unlike old style wrist pins that only relied on a cooling nozzle, this piston features a wrist pin that’s lubricated through a drilled connecting rod and the piston cooling nozzle. This increases oil flow to critical wear areas thus decreasing the need for maintenance over time. If the engine is being upgraded to incorporate a one-piece piston, the connecting rods must be replaced. The old non-drilled rod (Part No. 3681343) and the new drilled rod (Part No. 4059429) are both available for purchase from HHP.
The new cylinder liners included in the ISX Rebuild Kit feature an induction-hardened plateau honed finish and reduced thickness of the top press fit ledge. The new liner (Part No. 2882764) can be used to replace the previous liner (Part No. 4101507) and is available from HHP. It is important to note that these are not interchangeable and the new style liner is included as part of the rebuild kit. The piston ring sets feature steel fire rings and oil control rings for an excellent seal to the cylinder liner as well.
HHP’s new ISX engine overhaul rebuild kits are long lasting, extremely durable and cost roughly 30 percent less than similar OEM components. They are backed by an industry leading two-year, unlimited mileage parts and labor warranty and can be shipped directly to customers completely free of cost.
HHP also keeps remanufactured ISX and QSX cylinder heads in stock, which are also available for immediate delivery for customers who operate on tight schedules. Cylinder heads from HHP have been recast to increase strength and durability and feature brand new valves, guides, keepers, springs and injector sleeves to ensure high quality and increased performance. Free shipping is also standard on cylinder heads. (Common replacement part numbers include 3412280, 3680855, 3680872, 3682836, 3682863, 3683003, 3683986, 4026542, 4962732, 3412277, 410, 1420, 4059264, and 4926774).
