12 Valve Cummins Info

Hi, I've recently come across a Ram 250 sitting in a guys yard, and hes looking to get rid of it. He said it hasn't ran in 2 years, and I'd obviously like to see it run before I take it off his hands. Just wondering what kind of checklist I should have before I show up at his door. He says its a '91, and its got the air to air intercooler, which I thought was on the later models? Is the lift pump for the fuel electric or mechanical?

Also, I was wondering what year the water cooler for the turbo changed to the air to air, or was that just in the tractors? Also, when the distributor type injection pump switched to the bosch inline?

My knowledge of the Cummins engines is limited.

Thanks, all info appreciated.

Charge the batteries, check the oil, turn the key, see if it starts. Sounds like you got a b-series 5.9L. Theyve had bosch for a little bit, great set-up, though the new fuel chews up barrels, and plungers. You can tell if its electric fuel pump by seeing if it has aan electrical connector in it, if it doesnt, then its probably mechanical. Just check the oil, prime the system, she should start right up. B-series were always good.

Even after 2 years? I was thinking maybe with that old fuel sitting, I should try to get a jerry can and get the pump to feed out of that?

If your worried about the fuel, change the filter, and add some 911 to the tank, or any other alternative conditioner for older fuel..
