If no water in tanks, the air filter/water seperator is working.
Not knowing the location of these filters on your new machine, how had you planned to get under the vehicle to change filters with only (we assume) the leveling jacks to help? No jack stands? We've lost folks from this site doing approx. the same
X2 on the oil and filter + draining the air tanks. That will tell you id the dryer is working. and even if its not. its not a big deal to get under the vehicle for 30 seconds to drain any water every few days till you get home.
One note of caution the "water" in a air tanks can and usually will have a slight bit of oil in it. Be prepared for water oil mix spraying/misting.
If it has good power the fuel filter(s) are not clogged. I'd still go to napa and by them to have them on board if needed.

Sorry, didn't mean to get off topic earlier. When you say drain the water out of the air tanks, is there a drain valve for doing that on the tanks?

It is possible that if it is an ISB (similar to ours) in that vintage, there is only one fuel filter.
Hummmm!! My Vintage "99" ISB has 2 fuel filters on it.
A Water separator one with a see through bowl in a rear passenger outside compartment. And the final one before injectors on the top passenger side of the engine.

Torque for the 275 HP may be 600 ft lb with a 5 speed transmission or 660 ft lb with the Allison 6 speed MH3060 transmission.

For all Cummins Parts:
800-343-7357 Provide the engine S/N

That's all you'll need to get the correct OEM manufactures parts, description, part number and cost. They can also advise with any maintenance questions you may have.

Yes on both verticle and horiozntal tanks there will be a small valve at the bottom or at the end on the bottom and usually there isn't much water if it has been drained lately or if the dryer is working as new.
Some newer vehicles will have 4 air tanks. even ones with single rear axles.
