Hose Chaffing

While checking around in my engine compartment today working on another problem I noticed a couple hoses were chaffing pretty badly. Managed to get some insulation foam around them with a tie-wrap to prevent a future leak.

Might be a good time for everyone to spend a few minutes in the engine compartment of your Cummins!

I found about 30 chaffing points and did a recall myself for the same. It's no wonder many have had this problem and did not know it or check.

don't use insulating foam, get a section of radiator hose and cut it up. the insulating foam will deteriorate in short time.
