Is your cylinder head in your Cummins ISL or ISLG natural engine cracked in multiple places? Are you looking for a replacement head but cant find quality options?
We know that parts for natural gas engines can be hard to find, especially the cylinder heads. These heads are in high demand and short supply - especially quality new heads. In this post we're taking you through why the cylinder head on your natural gas engine seems to crack so easily and what your options are.
If you're running a natural gas engine you probably heard or experienced that they can fail more easily than other engines. It can also be difficult to find technicians who are properly trained to work on these complicated machines. But what do these failures mean for you?
When you're operating a natural gas engine one of the components that can cause you the most problems is the cylinder head. They tend to crack even more than you might find with your standard cylinder head.
Natural gas diesel engines experience more stress due to:
Extreme Cylinder Pressures
These cylinder heads are similar to any other cylinder head, but they're more susceptible to cracks and failures. This is because of the increase in extreme pressures. With a normal diesel cylinder head so you might get one or two cracks, but with a natural gas engine you're likely to end up with 8-12 cracks.
It's important to know that a remanufactured cylinder head that has been welded, even by the best welders with the best processes will never be as strong as the original head was. So if you have a cylinder head with many cracks in different spots and you have to weld it, the overall quality of the cylinder head won't be as good.
We've come out with a new cylinder head that's going to alleviate the problems of cracked heads. Recently there's been a shortage of cylinder heads for natural gas engines, and the quality of the remanufactured heads isn't as good as new.
You don't have to settle for an inferior product for your natural gas engine. We have an option of a brand new cylinder head for the Cummins ISLG that's never been welded, and there's no core necessary. You don't have to go back to the OEM for a new cylinder head just because you have a natural gas engine. We have options for you and we can get it to you fast.
Our cylinder head not only keeps up with OEM technology, but there's been some improvements over the original OEM casting to help prevent cracking. It's designed with wider fluid passages and a thicker deck. This allows for better coolant flow for more efficient transfer of heat, and it's made with higher nickel content for longer lasting strength and durability!
