I blew up my 07' cummins and before I put a new motor in it, I want to make sure that I diagnose the problem correctly so it doesn't happen to the new motor.
The morning of the incident, I was warming up my truck when I notice the oil pressure slap down to the zero mark and right back up to the standard position, worried, I shut it off and checked all the fluids. All seemed well so i drove on, about three hours later driving down a small grade with no load and in 6th, the motor violently knocked twice and on the third knock sent cam parts and a fire ball out the left side of the block.
If anyone has any info I would much appreciate the help. Have a wonderful day.
had 128,000 on it

'The engine was on other sites, but we received the most calls from DieselEngineTrader.com. We sold it to the first caller-from DieselEngineTrader.com. Also, there was a waiting list on the engine if the first sale fell through! Thanks for the great service!'

'Listed a Perkins T6.354 on DieselEngineTrader and sold it after 5 month. With a listing fee of $5.00 per month and no commission, it was much cheaper and more effective than the magazine we also used.'

'Sold my engine within weeks of listing - thanks for your help!'
