Cummins Crankshafts

Cummins Crankshaft
Cummins engines and crankshafts can be found in a variety of applications including, pick up trucks, diesel generators, marine applications and even in mining operations. Below you will find additional information to help you choose an appropriate machine shop to repair your Cummins crankshaft.


Diesel and Specialized Crankshaft Grinding


Grinding Diesel and special application crankshafts may require special equipment. Many automotive machine shops have crankshaft grinding and welding machines that allow a maximum of 48 inches between chucks. If your Cummins crankshaft exceeds this distance, you may wish to verify that the machine shop can indeed repair your crankshaft.

Diesel and special application crankshafts tend to have a larger radius. Most automotive machine shops can handle a crankshaft with a 1/8 inch radius or less. If the radius on your Cummins crankshaft is greater then 1/8 of an inch, you may wish to verify that the crankshaft grinder can accommodate this.

Straightening a bent Cummins crankshaft can be difficult if the length is long. However, most automotive machine shops that straighten typical automotive crankshafts should be able to accommodate the occasional long crankshaft.
