8 cylinder Cummins!

8 cylinder Cummins!
Thought you guys would like to get a chance to buy a very rare 8 cylinder Cummins in Arkansas. Considering the torque on a I6, I couldn't begin to imagine an 8 cyl.

I know, it's just really hard to get sarcasm across in text form! Makes me wonder how well it was really cared for when the owner doesn't know how many cylinders it has!

i gotcha! you would be suprised at how many people done know that a cummins is only a 6 cylinder, and alot think its 8 because ford/chevy diesels are based on a gas motor with 8.

Why would one say the Ford or GM V8 diesels are based on gas engines? Because they are V8s?

Newsflash: Detroit, Caterpillar, Cummings, and many others all produce V8 diesels, too.

Likewise, Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes, etc., etc., have all produced inline 6-cylinder gassers over the course of the last 100 years.

So by the logic that Ford and GM's diesels are converted gassers, I guess it's logical to say the B-series of Cummings engines are based on the old Ford 226 inline-6 from the '40s, right?

Wrong. They are based off the old 6.5 that chevrolet joint-ventured with detroit on (which was a converted gasser by the way). At least on the duramax (which is crap, solely because Isuzu makes it; they don't make anything good because they're a jap company, right?). The powerstroke was based off a 444 cu. in. gas motor found in the early trans ams. I know, I had the original Burt Reynolds/Jerry Reed bandit car that said "444 cu. in. International" on the top of it. It was a sweet car, too. It even ran on an inline injection pump, just like the "D Series" cuminns engines; plus it was able to run on 87 octane. Pretty freakin sweet.

Plus, they combust their fuel in the same was a gas engines do. So they HAVE to be based off gas motors. At least that's what my Chilton's manual says. Dunno

RE: 8 cylinder Cummins!
No, they were originally 8 cylinder diesels with the block split in the middle. They could double production that way.
