Cummins Six

Hi all,

Has anyone ever heard of a C Class powered by a Dodge "Cummings" Six Diesel? I have had the privilege of driving a 5 ton wrecker lately moving derelict autos around Vancouver Island and this unit has been retrofitted with a Cummings. I can't believe the low fuel consumption on this unit even hauling a car on the deck and two on a trailer. Phenominal when compared to my MH with a 400 Chev small block.

Dodge didn't have anything to do with the develpoment of that cummins engine.
THey were just the first (and only) pick builders to installthem as OEM equipment.
Dodge probibly did have their own settings for fuel to get the HP and TQ that they wanted.

Yes compared to a 400 small bolck, All Diesels do quite well on fuel.

Sorta like the 1987 Ford F (something) that I had with a huge V-8 Diesel. Everyone called that motor a ford V-8 but in reality it was an International Harvester in drag. The mileage on it wasn't too bad but considering it hardly change when dragging the 26 foot TT I kinda liked traveling with that thing.
